The spatial variation of arsenic, including arsenic speciation changes under the influence of water quality parameters in lake Dianchi, China was investigated. The water quality parameters were found to differ between the two basins of the lake (Caohai vs. Waihai), consistent with the eutrophic status. Arsenic in Caohai was greater than that in Waihai, with average values as 9.45 and 6.68 μg L(-1), respectively. Expect redox potential, correlation between various water quality parameters and arsenic forms were found, supporting the hypothesis that arsenic partition in suspended particulates in Lake Dianchi was driven mainly by biota factor.
