Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) From data previously published by richir & Gobert [7], the first objective of this short note was to discuss the bioaccumulation profile of 19 TEs that have been either broadly (Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb, As, Ag and V) or little monitored (Be, Al, Fe, Mn, Co, Se, Mo, Sn, Sb and Bi) in the Mediterranean mussel M. galloprovincialis. The second objective was to test the relevance of the Trace Element Pollution index of richir & Gobert [8] when modelling the effect of the shell length and flesh dry weight on the overall accumulation of these 19 TEs in rope- grown mussels. Because of the importance of gametogenesis in the physiological cycle of M. galloprovincialis, the third objective was to briefly discuss the deterministic effect of the sex and the reproductive status on the overall TE bioaccumulation and the TE-specific compartmentalization in that species.
