OBJECTIVES Crustacea are at high risk of toxic effects of agricultural pesticides. Currently, many questions regarding the toxicity of triazine herbicides to crayfish remain unresolved. The aim of this research was to evaluate the acute toxicity of atrazine, hexazinone, metribuzine, prometryne, simazine, and terbutryne to juvenile signal crayfish (Pacifastacus leniusculus). DESIGN Acute toxicity tests were performed in accordance with standardized guidelines for testing of chemicals, OECD no… CONTINUE READING
