The article cites a study which reports on toxicity response of Emerita analoga collected from beaches of South Central Chile. Emerita analoga is an abundant decapod crustacean frequently encountered along the Pacific coastal zone. In this area there are detectable levels of cadmium resulting from human activity, which could be influencing the local biota. The study was conducted to determine if individuals of E. Analoga, coming from beaches in Southern Central Chile with differing degrees of human alteration, exhibit different responses to the toxic effect exerted by cadmium sulfate, and to evaluate whether E. analoga could be used as a bioindicator for South Pacific coasts.
