Notes on the Iron Content of the Blood and Liver of some Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Animals
Entry ID: iron_liver

Abstract: Introduction:
During the seasons of 1954-1956 samples of liver and blood were collected from animals at Heard Island and Antarctica by members of the Australian Antarctic Expeditions. These samples were obtained primarily for determination of copper levels (see reference).
Iron determinations were made concurrently by Beck and histological examinations were made on some of the liver samples by ... View entire text
