Methods for measuring the toxicity and bioaccumulation of sediment-associated contaminants with freshwater invertebrates
Procedures are described for testing freshwater organisms in the laboratory to evaluate the toxicity or bioaccumulation of contaminants associated with whole sediments. Sediments may be collectedExpand

Population‐, community‐ and ecosystem‐level responses of aquatic mesocosms to pulsed doses of a pyrethroid insecticide
Population-, community-, and ecosystem-level responses to pulsed dosing of a pyrethroid insecticide were studied in experimental aquatic mesocosms. Twelve mesocosms (0.1 ha, 700 m3 volume) were dosedExpand

Toxicity of metal-contaminated sediments from the upper Clark Fork River, Montana, to aquatic invertebrates and fish in laboratory exposures
Sediments of the upper Clark Fork River, from the Butte and Anaconda area to Milltown Reservoir (230 km downstream), are contaminated with As, Cd, Cu, Pb, Mn, and Zn primarily from mining activities.Expand
