Long-term sediment bioassay of lead toxicity in two generations of the marine amphipod Elasmopus laevis, S.I. Smith, 1873.

Abstract

Sediments are evaluated for toxicity by measuring mortality in a single cohort of amphipods in either acute (10-d) or chronic (28-d) bioassays. This investigation differed from conventional bioassays in four ways: Sublethal effects (fecundity) were estimated; the testing period was 60+ d; two successive generations were examined; and Elasmopus laevis Smith… (More)
