Abstract

Cadmium has widespread use in industrial products, including batteries, pigments, plastic stabilizers, electroplating material and alloys. The manufacturing processes result in its discharge to the environment via the air and aquatic systems, causing concern for the potential impact on ecosystems and human health. Investigations into effects of the presence of cadmium in the freshwater environment have been well documented, a fact reflected by growth of the scientific literature. In addition to papers in primary journals, a large number of reviews and bibliographies have been published to meet the demand for information by the diverse bodies concerned with environmental protection and the development of standards for health and safety. This current compilation is largely the by-product of a comprehensive search of the literature on cadmium in the freshwater environment to provide data for the Environmental Chemical Data and Information Network (ECDIN).
