The bioconcentration of the insecticide chlorpyrifos (CPF) [O,O-diethyl-O-(3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridil) phosphorothioate] by the freshwater isopod Asellus aquaticus (L.) was investigated under time-varying exposure conditions in artificial outdoor ditches. The insecticide was applied as a single dose of Dursban 4E trade mark at nominal initial concentrations of the active ingredient of 0.7 and 5.0 microg litre(-1). Toxicokinetic rate constants of CPF were estimated using three methods based on… CONTINUE READING
