原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The concentrations of some trace metals in the Acropora downingi coral skeleton and sediment samples of Khark Island, Chirouyeh and Hendorabi Island in the northern part of the Persian Gulf were evaluated to determine the ecological risks of trace metal contamination in the sediment. Risk assessment indices revealed that Cd in all of the studied areas as well as Ni and Pb in Chirouyeh site would be expected to cause ecological risk occasionally. Moreover, Chirouyeh site showed a high tendency for trace metal adsorption. Khark and Chirouyeh sites showed higher risk values than the unpopulated Hendorabi, indicating that the anthropogenic activities had a significant impact on the trace metal contamination. Multivariate clustering dendrogram and Pearson's correlation coefficient...
