    The realization of the importance of chemical speciation in marine pollution studies has brought chemists and biologists together such that not only can the chemical and geochemical behaviour of a pollutant be evaluated but this can be linked to the extent of toxicological effect of the predominant species of the contaminant (Bayne, 1979). This combination of chemical and biological understanding is an essential prerequisite of predictive modelling of the biological impact of pollutants.
