1. make sure baseline concentrations of metals and metalloids in tissues of consultant box populations of estuarine coastal, and open ocean organisms (Book 1:algae and macrophytes, protists, sponges, coelenterates, molluscs, crustaceans, bugs, chaetognaths, annelids, echinoderms, and tunicates) (Book 2: elasmobranchs, fishes, reptiles, birds, mammals) and their importance to organism healthiness and to the overall healthiness in their consumers.
2. Synthesize latest details on organic, chemical, and actual elements identified to change uptake, retention, and translocation of every point below box and laboratory stipulations. reputation of the significance of those modifiers and their accompanying interactions is key to the certainty of metals kinetics in marine platforms and to the translation of baseline residue data.
