- ... Highly precise and reliable determination of heavy metals in soil micro-arthropod tissues remains a challenge because of the small size of the animals and their typical low abundance in metal-contaminated agricultural soils. The present study sought to develop a method for cadmium (Cd) determination in soil micro-arthropods by optimizing the sample digestion procedure, reducing sample weight, modi ...
