Heavy metal concentrations in the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) in the Western Scheldt [Zware metalen in de blauwe mossel (Mytilus edulis) in de Westerschelde]

Access data
Availability: Unknown
The correct value is not known to and not computable by the creator of this information. However a correct value probably exists

Description
The soft tissue of the Blue mussle ( Mytilus edulis) from the Westerscheldt was analysed on heavy matals concentrations. Temporal and spatial patterns were unraveled.
