Current aquatic environmental risk assessment of plant protection products or biocides does not consider effects on organisms involved in leaf litter breakdown, a fundamental ecosystem process in streams. Therefore, direct ecotoxicological implications of tebuconazole, a frequently used triazole fungicide, on the leaf-shredding amphipod Gammarus fossarum, were assessed. While acute toxicity was low (96h-LC(50)=1347 μg/L), feeding rate, a sublethal endpoint, was significantly reduced after seven… Expand
Ecotoxicological impact of the fungicide tebuconazole on an aquatic decomposer-detritivore system.
TLDR
Results suggest that tebuconazole affects both components of the investigated decomposer-detritivore system, however, adverse effects on the level of detritivores cannot be explicitly attributed to direct or indirect pathways. Expand
Effects of current-use fungicides and their mixtures on the feeding and survival of the key shredder Gammarus fossarum.
TLDR
The results suggest that risks to the fundamental ecosystem function of leaf litter breakdown posed by fungicides may not be adequately considered during the regulation of these compounds, which makes further experimental efforts necessary. Expand
Waterborne toxicity and diet-related effects of fungicides in the key leaf shredder Gammarus fossarum (Crustacea: Amphipoda).
TLDR
Fungicide mixtures have the potential for detrimental implications in aquatic ecosystem functioning by affecting shredders via both effect pathways, as indicated by a full 2×2-factorial test design. Expand
Assessing effects of the fungicide tebuconazole to heterotrophic microbes in aquatic microcosms.
TLDR
Investigating the effects of a fungicide applied at its "non-microbial" HC5 concentration and derived from acute single species toxicity tests on fish, invertebrates and primary producers on the community structure and functioning of heterotrophic microbes (bacteria and aquatic fungi) in a semi-field study finds that tebuconazole may affect aquatic fungi and fungally mediated processes even when applied at this concentration.

Chronic effects of the strobilurin fungicide azoxystrobin in the leaf shredder Gammarus fossarum (Crustacea; Amphipoda) via two effect pathways.
TLDR
The results of the present study show that diet-related strobilurin effects can occur at concentrations below those inducing waterborne toxicity, however, the latter seems to be more relevant at higher fungicide concentrations. Expand
Direct and indirect toxicity of the fungicide pyraclostrobin to Hyalella azteca and effects on leaf processing under realistic daily temperature regimes.
TLDR
The influence of realistic temperature variation on fungicide toxicity to shredding invertebrates is described, which is important for understanding how future alterations in daily temperature regimes due to climate change may influence the assessment of ecological risk of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems. Expand
Imidacloprid perturbs feeding of Gammarus pulex at environmentally relevant concentrations.
TLDR
The authors found that imidacloprid inhibits feeding of G. pulex during exposure at concentrations ≥ 30 µg/L and that there was no recovery in feeding on transfer into clean media for 3 d and concentrations found to influence feeding lie within the range of estimated and measured environmental concentrations.

Effects of two commonly used fungicides on the amphipod Austrochiltonia subtenuis.
TLDR
The present study demonstrates wide-ranging effects of 2 common fungicides on an ecologically important species that has a key role in trophic transfer and nutrient recycling in aquatic environments and emphasizes the importance of considering the long-term effects of fungicides in the risk assessment of aquatic ecosystems.

Antibiotic mixture effects on growth of the leaf-shredding stream detritivore Gammarus fossarum
TLDR
A potential role of food-quality, gammarid gut microflora and alteration in the moulting cycle in mediating impacts of antibiotics on these detritivores and the leaf decomposition process in streams is suggested. Expand
Impact of fungicides on an aquatic decomposer-detritivore system
Leaf litter breakdown is a fundamental process in aquatic ecosystems, being mainly mediated by decomposer-detritivore systems that are composed of microbial decomposers and leaf-shredding,Expand

Antibiotics as a chemical stressor affecting an aquatic decomposer-detritivore system.
TLDR
Results indicate that mixtures of antibiotics may disrupt important ecosystem processes such as organic matter flow in stream ecosystems, although effects are likely to be weak at antibiotic concentrations typical of streams receiving wastewater treatment plant effluents. Expand

Mixture toxicity assessment of wood preservative pesticides in the freshwater amphipod Gammarus pulex (L.).
TLDR
The present results show that toxicity of wood preservative mixtures cannot be assessed starting only from the toxicities of each single component, and strongly suggest that the environmental impacts of wood Preservative mixture might be frequently underestimated. Expand
Ecotoxicologial evaluation of wastewater ozonation based on detritus-detritivore interactions.
TLDR
Food-choice trials as applied here hold promise to assess environmental effects of advanced oxidation technologies in wastewater treatment and appear to be a valuable complement to the ecotoxicological toolbox in general. Expand
Disturbances in energy metabolism of Daphnia magna after exposure to tebuconazole.
TLDR
The data suggest that tebuconazole is moderately toxic to D. magna but also that it seriously impairs the metabolic functions, resulting in alterations in biochemical constituents, and indicates the importance of feeding studies in laboratory toxicity test as well as their relationship with others studies.

Short-term exposure to sublethal tebuconazole induces physiological impairment in male zebrafish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
Fish exhibited significant increase of vitellogenins (Vtg), which continued to increase after 14 days of recovery, which alert about the multiple disruptive physiological actions that tebuconazole may have on fish. Expand
The functional and physiological status of Gammarus fossarum (Crustacea; Amphipoda) exposed to secondary treated wastewater.
TLDR
High proportions of wastewater in the stream flow may affect both the breakdown rates of leaf material and thus the availability of energy for the aquatic food web as well as the energy budget of G. fossarum. Expand

TLDR
The G. pulex in situ feeding assay is a short-term sublethal biomonitor of water quality that is indicative of community- and ecosystem-level responses occurring over longer time periods and is robust, responsive, and relevant. Expand

The woodlouse Porcellio scaber (Latr.) (Crustacea, Isopoda) is chosen as a representative from the soil invertebrate community to analyze the consequences of benzo(a)pyrene exposure for the energy metabolism. Expand
Azole fungicides: occurrence and fate in wastewater and surface waters.
TLDR
Concentrations of the pharmaceutical fluconazole correlated with the expected contamination by domestic wastewater, but not those of the biocides; per capita loads of propiconazole and tebuconazoles in lakes suggested additional inputs; for example, from agricultural use or urban runoff rainwater.
