Toxic effects of the antifouling agent irgarol 1051 on periphyton communities in coastal water microcosms
In the late 1980s, a number of countries restricted the use of tri-n-butyltin (TBT) as an active ingredient in antifouling paint for small boats, including pleasure craft. Irgarol
Pollution-induced community tolerance (PICT) in marine periphyton in a gradient of tri-n-butyltin (TBT) contamination
Abstract Before the ban of tri- n -butyl tin (TBT) compounds as antifouling agents, yacht marinas were important sources of TBT contamination in coastal waters. The impact of TBT on marine periphyton
Pollution-induced community tolerance (PICT) in periphyton communities established under tri-n-butyltin (TBT) stress in marine microcosms
Abstract The environmental problem of the antifouling agent tri- n -butyltin (TBT) was recognized during the 1980's and the use of TBT on pleasure crafts was banned in several countries. Marine
Recovery of marine periphyton communities around a swedish marina after the ban of TBT use in antifouling paint
The pollution-induced community tolerance (PICT) concept was used to investigate effects of tri-n-butyltin (TBT) on marine periphyton communities on the Swedish west coast. Earlier field and
Source of organotin at a marine water/sediment interface — A field study
Abstract Tributyltin (TBT) was banned in Sweden by January 1989 and the concentration of TBT was expected to decline in ambient waters. Investigations at the study site in 1989 and 1990, indicated
A retrospective analysis of contamination and periphyton PICT patterns for the antifoulant irgarol 1051, around a small marina on the Swedish west coast.
The results support the hypothesis that that the PICT potential was low initially, due to a small differential sensitivity between the community members, and that a persistent selection pressure was required to favour and enrich irgarol-tolerant species or genotypes.
Use of sand-living microalgal communities (epipsammon) in ecotoxicological testing
A new ecotoxicological test system employing sand-living microalgal communities is presented. Equipment and procedures were developed for sampling and transportation of epipsammon to the laboratory
Report of the OECD Workshop on Statistical Analysis of Aquatic Toxicity Data
There are three required components of dynamic models for toxic effects: toxico kinetics, effects on a target parameter coupled to the internal concentration and the physiological component. The
