Abstract
    Comparison of the Cd, Cu and Zn contents of F. Vesiculosus at various sites in the Bristol Channel, with a detailed investigation of the dissolved trace metal concs to which they are subjected, demonstrates the passive nature of the accumulation. Consistent conc factors have been obtained over a range of mean ambient dissolved concs of these metals. In contrast, Mn accumulation appears to be partially regulated.
