A comparative study was carried out on ecological and genetical adaptation of three Iraqi freshwater snails, Physa acuta, Melanopsis buccinoidea and Melanoides tuberculata, in respect to acute toxicity of heavy metals (Zn, Cd and Hg). Longevity are used as poisoning tolerance criterion. LT 50 and LT 100 were determined for the studied snails at (0.5, 1, 5, and 10 ppm), for the three metals. Results indicated that Physa acuta had a higher tolerance than Melanopsis buccinoidea and Melanoides…

Acclimation and tolerance of Artemia salina and Ophryotrocha labronica to cooper sulphate

It is suggested that, in A. salina, a certain tolerance to copper may be acquired through exposure to low concentrations, while in O. labronica, this tolerance diminished in successive generations.

THE TOXICITY OF ZINC SULPHATE TO RAINBOW TROUT

Zinc sulphate was less toxic to rainbow trout in hard water than in soft water; when the log concentration of zinc was plotted against log median period of survival of the fish the dose response curve was linear in a very soft water, and curvilinear in a hard water, approaching an apparent threshold concentration.

The general pharmacology of the heavy metals.

A discussion of predominantly theoretical aspects of metal poisoning is presented and the responses of biological systems to heavy metals were considered in terms of inferences that could be made concerning the site of the original chemical insult.
