The aquatic ecotoxic profile of the fungicide pyrimethanil and its acute and chronic thermal dependence in two aquatic invertebrates Chironomus riparius and Daphnia magna were investigated. The ecotoxicity of pyrimethanil at optimal thermal conditions did not depend on the trophic level, but was species-specific. The acute pyrimethanil-toxicity on C… (More)
Fig. 4. Effects of pyrimethanil (0.5 mg L 1) on the intrinsic population growth of Daphnia magna under dynamic changing temperature regimes [ C] during a 140-daylong multigenerational study. Each symbol (black dot ¼ control, open dot ¼ fungicide) represents the calculated increase of the growth rate for every generation (mean, n ¼ 10). Temperature scenarios are A) ‘cold year, today’, B) ‘warm year, today’ and C) ‘warm year, 2080’.
