Polybrominated diphenyl ethers form a group of highly hydrophobic and persistent chemicals that are detected in various environmental matrices, such as soil, water, sediments, and biota. Although a variety of biological effects have been documented in vertebrates, the effects in invertebrates seem to be largely unknown. The objective of the present study was to determine the toxic effects of 2,4,2',4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (BDE 47) on the growth of the marine diatom Skeletonema costatum and… CONTINUE READING
