Abstract

Accumulation of heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb) in the mother–placenta–fetus system has been studied in small mammals (based on a case study of bank voles) living under conditions of environmental pollution from copper production emissions (Middle Ural). The role of gastrointestinal and placental barriers has been assessed in translocation of the studied elements from pregnant female diets to embryos. It has been shown that, with existing environmental pollution levels, the entry of toxicants into the organisms of female individuals does not necessarily lead to significant fetal losses during pregnancy, but it may affect the quality of progeny and its vital capacity in the early postnatal period.
