Food is added to exposure solutions in cladoceran chronic toxicity tests and sometimes in acute toxicity tests, but its effects on the bioavailability of toxicants have not been studied extensively. We compared the toxicity of waterborne Ag and Cu to Ceriodaphnia dubia in the presence or absence of food (a mixture of a yeast--Cerophyll--trout chow slurry and a green alga) in two series of acute toxicity tests. In the first series, we added food to Ag or Cu exposure solutions 0, 30, 60, or 120… CONTINUE READING
