We investigated the effect of 4-nonylphenol (NP) on nematode communities in the sediment of freshwater microcosms. Seven treatments were dosed with various concentrations of NP over a period of six weeks by using a controlled-release method (NPI-NP7; maximum sediment concentrations: 0.29-3.37 mg/kg dry wt). Four microcosms were not exposed to NP and served as controls. Nematode communities were analyzed over a period of 15 weeks, including sampling dates before, within, and after the NP… CONTINUE READING
