First and fourth instar C. riparius larvae hatched from the same egg mass were briefly exposed to equivalent assumed doses (mg hr) of Cd and adult emergence monitored for up to 50 days post hatch. Significantly more animals survived to emerge from control conditions than from any of the test solutions. For fourth instar larvae the presence or absence of artificial sediment during testing had no significant effect upon subsequent emergence. In terms of equivalent assumed doses, exposure to a… CONTINUE READING
