Abstract

A review of the nature and accumulation of arsenic in marine organisms is presented. A study of the literature has revealed a lack of information about the mechanisms of uptake, molecular transformations, and biochemical associations of arsenic within organisms, and it remains unclear whether a few forms of arsenic are ubiquitous. The arsenic forms present in marine sediments and their role in the biogeochemical cycling of arsenic are also largely unknown
