A new method for analysis of the toxicity of organophosphorus pesticide, dimethoate on rotifer based on response surface methodology.

Abstract

This study analyzed the toxicity of organophosphorus pesticide, dimethoate on freshwater rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus, using swimming angular and linear speed alteration as the sub-lethal endpoints. Response surface methodology (RSM) was applied in experimental design and data analysis to consider two related factors: toxic concentration, exposure time… (More)
