Study organisms in chronic toxicological bioassays are often provided with excessive resources to remove food limitations as a confounding experimental variable. Under more ecologically realistic situations, resources are often less abundant and such restrictions may alter the responses of organisms to environmental contaminants. Here, we investigated the interaction between resource level and sediment toxicity in the lake chubsucker, Erimyzon sucetta. For 78 days we fed fish one of three… CONTINUE READING
