Effects of Cu and Zn through food as well as through the water on the growth and emergence of the young larvae of Epeorus latifolium (Ephemeroptera), were investigated using an indoor model stream. The critical lowest concentrations of Cu which have significant effects on the growth of the larvae were between 10 and 15 µg l-1 Cu. Growth and emergence of the(More)
A dose of 2 ppm of temephos in emulsifiable formulation was applied to a mountain stream to observe its effects on the zoobenthos and the subsequent changes in benthic algae. Most zoobenthos in the treated region drifted but there were slight differences among taxa. Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera disappeared but some Trichoptera and Diptera survived.(More)
