The toxicity of mixtures of copper, zinc, and diazinon were determined for Ceriodaphnia dubia using 7-d survival and reproduction tests. Fifteen treatments, including combinations of the chemicals at 0, 25, 50, 75, and 100% of their individual median lethal concentrations, adding up to one toxic unit (TU) were tested. The TU was then used to classify each mixture response as additive, greater than additive, or less than additive. For survival, additive responses occurred in the 75% zinc plus 25… Expand
Toxicity of copper, lead, and zinc mixtures to Ceriodaphnia dubia and Daphnia carinata.
TLDR
A more than additive effect was indicated by the acute tests for both species exposed toCu+Pb, for D. carinata exposed to Cu+Zn, and for C. dubia exposed to all three metals. Expand
Joint effects of Penta-BDE and heavy metals on Daphnia magna survival, its antioxidant enzyme activities and lipid peroxidation
The joint toxicity of Penta-BDE (Pe-BDE) and heavy metals including cadmium and copper on Daphnia magna (D. magna) was evaluated on the basis of determining the 48 h survival, antioxidative enzymeExpand
Evaluating additive versus interactive effects of copper and cadmium on Daphnia pulex life history
TLDR
Overall, both metals reduced ingestion rates, reduced reproduction, delayed maturation, reduced body size at maturity and lowered somatic growth rate, which suggests that life history traits are affected in non-additive ways by three factors that are often discussed and rarely estimated together: mixtures of metals, genotypes and resource levels.

Mixture effects of nickel and chlorpyrifos on Folsomia candida (Collembola) explained from development of toxicity in time.
TLDR
It is shown that toxicity is a dynamic process and that mixture effects may be dependent on exposure time, and even at exposure levels below the No Effect Concentration, chlorpyrifos was found to reduce nickel toxicity. Expand
Modelling the joint effects of a metal and a pesticide on reproduction and toxicokinetics in Lumbricid earthworms.
TLDR
A combined approach using mixture toxicity testing, toxicokinetic studies and modelling has been used to address the link between joint toxicity and internal concentration and it is shown that exposure to combinations of nickel and chlorpyrifos resulted in additive toxicity. Expand
Mixture Toxicity of Copper and Selected Organophosphorus Pesticides to Vibrio qinghaiensis sp.-Q67
Heavy metals and pesticides released to the environment render the waters suffering from combined pollution. This study investigated the toxicity of binary and ternary mixtures of copper (Cu) and twoExpand
Combined effects of water quality parameters on mixture toxicity of copper and chromium toward Daphnia magna.
TLDR
The results suggest that it is not likely that the chemical property of DOM is important for prediction of the mixture toxicity of Cu(II) and Cr(VI) toward D. magna when the ligand concentration of DOMs greatly exceed the Cu( II) concentration. Expand
Joint toxicity of sediment-associated DDT and copper to a polychaete, Nereis succinea
TLDR
Joint toxicity between DDT and copper to an estuarine polychaete, Nereis succinea, was examined using bioaccumulation potential, growth impairment and change in lipid peroxidation contents as sub-lethal endpoints and copper was more toxic to the lugworms at environmentally relevant concentrations. Expand
Ecotoxicological and biochemical mixture effects of an herbicide and a metal at the marine primary producer diatom Thalassiosira weissflogii and the primary consumer copepod Acartia tonsa
TLDR
The mixture effects are more hazardous for primary consumer than for primary producer species in terms of both abundance and biomass quality, suggesting a potential for harmful effects for higher trophic levels and thus a decrease in energy flow through the ecosystem. Expand
Chlorpyrifos reduces nickel-induced growth retardation of the soil dwelling Collembolan Folsomia candida.
TLDR
It was shown that by monitoring the development of toxicity in time for both the single compounds and the mixtures it was possible to determine mixture interactions even when no complete dose-response curves were available for all mixture components. Expand

Interaction of Cd and Zn toxicity for Folsomia candida Willem (Collembola: Isotomidae) in relation to bioavailability in soil
TLDR
The effects of the mixture of Cd and Zn on the growth of F. candida are antagonistic, while the effects on reproduction are additive, and conclusions could be drawn for EC50s expressed on the basis of total and water-soluble soil concentrations as well as on the based of internal concentrations in the animals.

TLDR
The joint toxic effect of copper and zinc for E. crypticus was of similar magnitude as found in studies with aquatic species exposed to metal mixtures, as a result of dissimilarity between total and bioavailable concentrations. Expand

The results of this study indicate the potential for increased toxicity in organisms exposed to environmental mixtures. Expand

TLDR
Although the joint toxicity at sublethal level is lower than at lethal level, the toxicity of the mixtures remains much higher than that of the individual chemicals and is still near concentration addition. Expand
COMBINED EFFECTS OF METALS; AN ECOTOXICOLOGICAL EVALUATION

Combined at the maximum levels of the present Dutch water quality criteria these metals were severely toxic to D. magna and caused 50% mortality in Salmo gairdneri, the latter exposed for 60 days during embryo-larval development. Expand
Interacting effects of pH acclimation, pH, and heavy metals on acute and chronic toxicity to Ceriodaphnia dubia (Cladocera).
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that effluent guidelines for pH at 6-9 are sound, and that toxicantmore activity in chronic time frames is directed primarily by concentration and water hardness, not by pH. Expand
Effects of atrazine and cyanazine on chlorpyrifos toxicity in Chironomus tentans (Diptera: Chironomidae).
TLDR
Although atrazine and cyanazine are not effective inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in vitro, the synergism of the two triazine herbicides with chlorpyrifos was associated with increased in vivo inhibition of AChE in midges, and it is possible that these herbicides may affect cytochrome P450 enzymes to confer synergistic effects on the toxicity of chlorp Pyrifos.
