The fate of herbicide acetochlor and its toxicity to Eisenia fetida under laboratory conditions.
To assess the toxic effects of the herbicide acetochlor on earthworms, we exposed Eisenia fetida (Savigny) to artificial soils (OECD soil) supplemented with different concentrations (5, 10, 20, 40Expand

The effects of the presence of Bt-transgenic oilseed rape in wild mustard populations on the rhizosphere nematode and microbial communities.
The adventitious presence of transgenic crops in wild plant populations is of ecological and regulatory concern. In this context, their effects on non-target, below-ground organisms are not wellExpand

Effects of elevated CO2 on the nutrient compositions and enzymes activities of Nilaparvata lugens nymphs fed on rice plants
Elevated CO2 may reduce the tolerance of Nilaparvata lugen (N. lugens) to adverse environmental factors through the biological and physiological degeneration of N. lugens. In an artificial climateExpand

Laboratory assessment of the impacts of transgenic Bt rice on the ecological fitness of the soil non-target arthropod, Folsomia candida (Collembola: Isotomidae)
Transgenic rice expressing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) endotoxins (Bt rice) for pest control is considered an important solution to food security in China. However, tests for potential effects onExpand

The regeneration capacity of an earthworm, Eisenia fetida, in relation to the site of amputation along the body
Abstract It is well known that parts of earthworms can survive if they are cut off. Our aim was to link the regeneration capacity of an earthworm, Eisenia fetida (Oligochaeta, Annelida) with the siteExpand

[Effects of Bt toxin Cry1Ac on biochemical responses of Eisenia fetida in an artificial soil].
Bt toxin Cry1Ac could be introduced into soil by pollen, root exudates, and plant residues. To investigate its toxic effects, the Bt toxin was added into an earthworm-cultured artificial soil, andExpand

Coexistence of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)-transgenic and conventional rice affects insect abundance and plant fitness in fields.
BACKGROUND As genetically modified (GM) crops are cultivated worldwide, concerns are emerging about the ecological consequences of the coexistence of transgenic and non-transgenic crops in fields. WeExpand

[Lysosome of Eisenia fetida as biomarker of soil pollution].
The lysosome of Eisenia fetida can accumulate neutral red dye rapidly. When exposed to environment pollution, the membrane of the lysosome is easily to be cracked, and the dye shall leak to theExpand
