This work aims to assess the effects of cadmium on a bioindicator of pollution, Daphnia magna, a freshwater cladoceran microcrustacea. In fact, the chronic toxicity test duration was 21 days for Daphnis, so it’s a long and costy test. However, the development stages of Daphnia magna’s eggs could be used as potential tests for chronic toxicity. Indeed, microscopic examination of eggs for 72 hours could be an alternative to chronic toxicity test using 24 hours neonate. The parthenogenetic eggs of… CONTINUE READING
