|Title:||Variations in the inorganic ions and trace metals in the body parts of the Indian hemichordate Ptychodera flava [Hemichordata: Enteropneusta]|
|Authors:||Sharief, S. Dawood|
|Abstract:||Concentrations of trace metals and inorganic ions in proboscis and collar, branchiogenital, hepatic and anal parts of Ptychodera flava were investigated. Concentration levels of Fe, Cu and Mn were higher in the body parts of mature worms in comparison to juveniles. In general, maximum accumulation of trace metals and inorganic ions was observed in the branchio-genital region of mature worms, while Fe and Mg levels were higher in the anal part of juveniles.|
