Details analytical methods for the determination of mercury and covers the biogeochemical cycling of mercury in lakes, rivers, oceans, the soil and the atmosphere. This volume also examines the microbial transformation of mercury species, their accumulation in the food chain, the physiology and toxicology, and more.
