AbstractAcidification of estuaries results from microbial CO2 generation, acid sulphate groundwater discharge, and anthropogenic activities, in the context of weak buffering potential of hyposaline waters. The resulting acidification introduces an additional yet poorly studied factor influencing the ecology and distributions of biological populations and species. Furthermore, it has a complex influence on estuarine chemistry, including altering the speciation of metals and potentially their availability to the biotic component. With the aim of providing baseline information for metal accumulation in the shells and tissues of organisms inhabiting acidified turbid tropical Asian estuaries, we studied the rapanine whelk Indothais gradata from the mineral-acidified Sungai ...
