Heavy metals in the gastropods Dostia violacea and Cerithideopsilla djadjaviensis from Thane Creek, India

R.P. Athalye, K.S. Gokhale

Abstract



Two gastropods Dostia violacea and Cerithideopsilla djadjaviensis inhabiting the mud flats of Thane Creek (India) were investigated for Zn, Cu, Pb and Cd contents. Both were found to regulate the body metal contents and hence cannot be considered as indicators of Zn, Cu, Pb and Cd pollution
