Abstract The combined measurement of lead concentration and isotope ratios in organisms used as bio-monitors may provide a sensitive and cost-effective monitoring toot allowing an unambiguous assessment of the source of lead in environmental samples. Data presented here shows that dispersion of trace amounts of ore-derived Pb produced distinctive Pb isotope ratio changes in seagrass and oysters acting as sentinel accumulators.
