The aim of the research was to ascertain whether the locally predominant seagrass species, Zostera muelleri, could be a potential TE bioindicator. This is was achieved by conducting two multi-factor laboratory Cu and environmental experiments and spatial and temporal field assessments. Results has shown that the seagrasses life cycle and the part of the seagrass analysed can influence the metal concentrations, which is important for interpretation of results.
