Passive Uptake or Permeation: an Important Mechanism for Hg-methylating Organism to Take up Hg(II)

Methylmercury (MeHg) can be bioaccumulated and biomagnified at high levels in food webs, particularly in fish and rice, and is thus a significant threat to human health and the environment.

Researchers Establish a Cost-saving and Time-saving Method for the Effective Removal of As from A...

AMD with high concentrations of dissolved arsenic originated from mining of metallic sulfide ore deposits has been recognized as a major threat for water environment.

Changes In Litter Quality Induced by N Deposition Alter Soil Microbial Communities

In terrestrial ecosystems, the majority of the above-ground primary production enters the soil system as plant litter.

Scientists Find Digestive Solubilization of Particle-Associated Arsenate by Deposit-Feeders

Food safety is one of the hottest public issues in China. Arsenic (As) is a notorious toxin. Bioaccumulation of arsenic by aquatic organisms has been an important concern because of possible human ...

Fungal Community Diversity and Composition are Determined by the Trade-off between Nutrient Depos...

Fungal adaptation to nutrient cyclings of vegetations is observed along forest chronosequence. However, the mechanisms behind plant-fungus interactions in controlling carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) ac...
