(BAF) is an index of the degree of accumulation of a contaminant in an organism relative to its environment.
in Leaves and Roots ([BCF.sub.A] and [BCF.sub.R]).
Interseasonal comparisons of Cu bioaccumulation factor
at each tissue (water-to-root; water-to-shoot; belowground parts-to-aboveground parts) revealed no significant difference at the same season.
Though the fruit is a good source of potassium (bioaccumulation factor
= 14.90), it also hyper-accumulates nickel (bioaccumulation factor
= 84.00) qualifying the fruit as an indicator of nickel pollution.

(BAF) assessments for organic chemicals in aquatic organisms," Environmental Reviews, vol.
Also the bioaccumulation factor
(BAF) of each organ is presented in these tables.
(BAF) in wheat tissue was determined to investigate extent of Cd accumulation in wheat tissue.
The high bioaccumulation factor
for chromium and zinc suggests that the concentration of these metal ions n as it sometimes serves as a harbourage or the fish species have poor mechanisms for digesting and eliminating these heavy metals.
The bioaccumulation factor
(BAF) consists of ratios of the concentration of a given contaminant in biota (a particular metal concentration in fish muscle) to that in an abiotic media (water and food).
Table 1: Bioaccumulation factor
and transport factor of M.
By comparing available measured data and model predictions to bioaccumulation criteria in Canada [i.e., bioconcentration factor (BCF) or bioaccumulation factor
(BAF) [greater than or equal to] 5,000], approximately 1,240 organic chemicals on the DSL were identified as potentially bioaccumulative (Environment Canada 2006; Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations 2000).
