Uptake and accumulation of an organochlorine insecticide (dieldrin) by an estuarine mollusc, Rangia cuneata
Clams (Rangia cuneata) were collected from Trinity Bay in Texas to study uptake and accumulation of dieldrin from dilute solution. The clams were acclimated for 1 to 2 weeks in holding tanks at 25 C, 8.2 pH, and 15.6% ...
