The individual and combined toxicity of dissolved mercury, copper, lead and cadmium has been investigated by using the Parcentrotus lividus sea-urchin embryo-larval bioassay. Embryogenesis success and early larval growth have been recorded after incubation of fertilised eggs in seawater, both with single metals and binary combinations of Hg with every other metal. For individual metals the ranking of toxicity was Hg > Cu > Pb > Cd, with EC50 values of 21.9, 66.8, 509 and 9240 micrograms/l… CONTINUE READING
