Metal gill binding and toxicity can be modeled using the concentration addition model, in which the toxic unit (TU) concept is used to determine if constituent metals are acting in a strictly additive, less than, or greater than additive fashion. To test this hypothesis, rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were exposed to a matrix of Pb plus Cd mixtures (nominal concentrations=0.75, 1.5, 2.25, 3.0 μmol L(-1)), in the presence or absence of mainly terrigenous (allochthonous; 10 mg CL(-1… CONTINUE READING
