The sensitivity of Heterocypris incongruens to selected heavy metal ions is discussed. Although the Ostracodtoxkit ® has been present on the market for a few years, data on its selectivity and sensitivity to toxicants is scarce; such data is indispensable when interpreting the results of sediment toxicity. The LC(50) and EC(50) results with the Ostracodtoxkit ® are compared with those obtained with other commercially available "direct-contact" tests (utilizing Hyalella azteca and Chironomus… CONTINUE READING
