  • Inhibition of germination of zygotes of the fucoid macroalgae Hormosira banksii and Phyllospora comosa and zoospores of the laminarian Macrocystis angustifolia was used as an end-point to assess the toxicity of three sewage effluents of differing quality. For each species, between-assay variation was low and results of tests with the reference toxicant 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid suggested that results are reproducible, especially in R. comosa. Each species showed a greater sensitivity to… CONTINUE READING
