Guidance on tiered risk assessment for plant protection products for aquatic organisms in edge-of-field surface waters
EFSA‘s Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues (PPR) was tasked to revise the Guidance Document (GD) on Aquatic Ecotoxicology under Council Directive 91/414/EEC (SANCO/3268/2001 rev.4Expand

Assessment of trace metal toxicity using molecular, physiological and behavioural biomarkers
Abstract Laboratory-based assessments of the potentially damaging effects of trace metals in the natural environment are difficult to validate. This is a consequence of the diverse factors which inExpand

Dissociation of heart rate and locomotor activity during the expression of rhythmic behaviour in the shore crab Carcinus maenas
Expression of endogenous rhythms in heart rate and locomotor activity were examined in male Carcinus maenas (Brachyura, Crustacea). Heart rate was monitored in immobilised and free moving crabs usingExpand

In situ variation in heart rate of the shore crab Carcinus maenas in relation to environmental factors and physiological condition
Heart rate of Carcinus maenas was recorded continuously for two days in situ, together with water temperature, salinity, depth and light intensity. Of each sex, 25 crabs were used and assigned toExpand

Scientific opinion on the effect assessment for pesticides on sediment organisms in edge-of-field surface water
The EFSA Panel on Plant Protection Products and their Residues (PPR Panel) was tasked to revise the Guidance Document (GD) on Aquatic Ecotoxicology under Council Directive 91/414/EEC (SANCO/3268/2001Expand

Tidal and seasonal changes in the temporal and spatial distribution of foraging Carcinus maenas in the weakly tidal littoral zone of Kerteminde Fjord, Denmark
Seasonal and tidal changes in foraging actlvity of the shore crab Carcinus maenas were investigated from August 1992 to May 1993 in Kerteminde Fjord, Funen, Denmark. Foraging activity was 15 to 20Expand

Development of a framework based on an ecosystem services approach for deriving specific protection goals for environmental risk assessment of pesticides.
General protection goals for the environmental risk assessment (ERA) of plant protection products are stated in European legislation but specific protection goals (SPGs) are often not preciselyExpand

The use of cardiac monitoring in the assessment of mercury toxicity in the subtropical pebble crab Gaetice depressus (Brachyura: Grapsidae: Varuninae)
Heart rates were monitored in the pebble crab, Gaetice depressus using a non-invasive, computer aided cardiac monitoring system. A high degree of intra- and interindividual variability was observed,Expand
