- Distribution and substrate preference of the invasive clam Corbicula fluminea in the river Rhine in the region of Basel (Switzerland, Germany, France). Stephanie Schmidlin; Bruno Baur // Aquatic Sciences;Mar2007, Vol. 69 Issue 1, p153
Abstract.??The Asiatic clamCorbicula flumineainvaded the river Rhine in the Netherlands and Germany in the 1990s. It was first recorded in Switzerland (Basel) in 1995. We examined the distribution of the clam at 76 sites along the bank of the river Rhine, in three first order tributaries (Wiese,...
- Detection of Genotoxicity of Water from an Urbanized Stream, in Corbicula fluminea (Mollusca) (In Vivo) and CHO-K1 Cells (In Vitro) Using Comet Assay. Rigonato, Janaina; Mantovani, Mário; Jordão, Berenice // Archives of Environmental Contamination & Toxicology;Jul2010, Vol. 59 Issue 1, p31
The comet assay was utilized to investigate the quality of water from seven locations along the CambÃ© Stream, in vivo ( Corbicula fluminea hemolymph), in vitro (CHO-K1 cells), in situ, and in laboratory studies. The CambÃ© Stream basin (Londrina, PR, Brazil) is almost completely urbanized...
