Relations between whole-body acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition and changes in feeding and locomotor behaviours were investigated in adult male Gammarus fossarum during short-term exposure (96h) to the organophosphorous pesticide chlorpyrifos (CPE) and the carbamate pesticide methomyl (MT). AChE activity was measured after 24, 48 and 96h of exposure. The feeding rate was assessed after 48 and 96h of exposure and locomotor activity was measured at the end of the experiment. A concentration… CONTINUE READING
