The aim of this study was to investigate chronic effects of the platinum-group elements (PGE) palladium (Pd), platinum (Pt) and rhodium (Rh) on the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Aquatic toxicity testing was carried out according to ISO 10872 by determining 96 h EC50 values for sublethal endpoints, including growth, fertility and reproduction. Single PGE(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the concentrations of the metals Ag, Cd, Cu, Mn, Mo, Pb, Pt and Zn in sediments and amphipods along a 100m transect downstream of three different combined sewer overflows (CSOs). Moreover, the study was implemented to better understand the biological availability of metals downstream of CSOs as well as to identify a(More)
Metal uptake and accumulation in fish parasites largely depends on the parasite group with acanthocephalans showing the highest accumulation rates. Additionally, developmental stage (larvae or adult) as well as parasite location in the host are suggested to be decisive factors for metal bioconcentration in parasites. By using barbel (Barbus barbus)(More)
Increasing temperatures can be a significant stressor for aquatic organisms. Amphipods are one of the most abundant and functionally important groups of freshwater macroinvertebrates. Therefore, we conducted a laboratory experiment with Gammarus pulex, naturally infected with microsporidians. In each group, 42 gammarids were exposed to 15°C and 25°C for 24(More)
