The aim of this study was to determine the effect of exposure to cadmium and zinc mixtures on the weight of terrestrial isopods. Experiments were conducted using uncontaminated specimens of P. laevis. The isopods were exposed to various concentrations of cadmium and zinc sulfate in single- and mixed-metal experiments. The mean weight of the unexposed isopods in the control group increased over the 6 weeks of observation. It was concluded that cadmium and zinc, administered separately, had a… CONTINUE READING
