The aim of this study was to compare environmental quality in two sites in western Ukraine-rural (R) and urbanized (U)-with the usage of the resident bivalve mollusk Anodonta cygnea. The study was realized during three seasons. The metal uptake and a set of biochemical markers were determined. For each season, Cd and metallothioneins (MTs) contents in the digestive gland and gills of the mollusc were higher at the U site, reflecting its chronic pollution. The oxidative stress in the mollusk was observed at the U site during spring and at the R site during summer and autumn according to the differences in Mn-superoxide dismutase and catalase activities, O (2) (*-) production, lipid peroxidation, and glutathione levels. The elevated vitellogenin-like protein levels in the hemolymph and the ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase activity in the digestive gland in summer-autumn suggested pollutions by organic substances at the R site. The acetylcholinesterase activity was similar in both groups. The centroid grouping analysis of biomarkers and morphological and water indexes demonstrated the clear differentiation of general response in each group in spring and, at the R site, in summer and autumn but its similarity at the U site in summer and autumn.
