EFFECTS OF WATER pH ON COPPER TOXICITY TO EARLY LIFE STAGES OF THE COMMON CARP (CYPRINUS CARPIO)

  • Published 2017

Abstract

Carp eggs were exposed immediately after fertilization to Cu concentrations of 0.3 and 0,8 (xmol/L at water pH 7.6 or pH 6.3. Mortality, the incidence of spina! cord deformation, heart rate, tail movements, hatching success, and whole-body content of K, Na, Mg, Ca, and Cu were determined over time. Light microscopical preparations of eggs (48 h after… (More)
