Mercury in aquatic ecosystems

Abstract: Understanding mercury dynamics is primarily important because of the toxic threat mercury poses to wildlife and humans through the consumption of contaminated fish. Here I will present several studies that provide a better understanding of mechanisms associated with mercury contamination of, and movement in, aquatic systems. Knowledge gained from this work provides policy makers with additional tools for assessing and managing human and wildlife health risks.
