I am Chris Pickering, an Honours Biology student at McMaster University.  
The Advanced Ecology course I am taking is currently putting together a 
homepage concerning issues in Hamilton Harbour and Cootes Paradise.

Some topics include ecosystem modelling, species, and water quality.  My 
project is on the water quality part, specifically heavy metal contaminants.
This includes toxicity, sources, bioaccumulation factors and any 
synergisms that could occur when contaminants are mixed.

I was wondering if you had any possible sources that could be of use.  I 
haven't yet narrowed down to a particular set of metals so I'm open to 
any suggestions.

Thanks for your help in advance!
