Samples from the urban terrestrial environment in the Oslo area were analysed for metals and a large number of organic environmental pollutants. The selected species were earthworm, fieldfare, tawny owl, red fox and brown rat. Air- and soil-samples were also included in the study to further the understanding on sources and uptake of pollutants. A food-chain approach was used to investigate trophic magnification of the different compounds.
