Uptake and toxicity of metals from metal mixtures in aquatic and terrestrial systems: rationalization based on metal bioavailability models.

The general objective is to analyze the interactions among toxic trace metals for uptake and toxicity in aquatic and terrestrial systems in terms of the mechanisms that affect metal bioavailability. More in particular, experiments will be designed to test the proof of concept for a model that can predict mixture effects starting from the water and soil composition, including total dissolved metals in water or total metal in soil.
