This study aims to investigate the influence of high temperature on cadmium (Cd) toxicity in Aphanius fasciatus (Pisces: Cyprinodontidae). For this reason, Cd, mineral, and organic content in the vertebral column as well as the histological structure of gills and bone were compared in fishes exposed for 30 days to Cd (2 mg/L CdCl2) and/or high temperature (26 °C). Cd exposure caused a negative correlation between Cd and Ca concentrations (r?=?0.98, p?
