This study describes the toxicity of deltamethrin, in relation to its LD50 value, as well as variation in respiratory metabolism of the isopod species Porcellio scaber Latr kept at 3 temperature values (10, 22 and 30ºC). The low LD50 values obtained indicate that deltamethrin is a highly toxic pyrethroid for the crustacean tested, particularly at 10ºC. We… CONTINUE READING
