While toxicological data are available for numerous chemicals from standard tests, little is known on effects of pollutants over several generations or regarding chronic effects of chemicals on genetic diversity. Within the experiments, effects of the model pollutant tributyltin (TBT) were investigated over eleven generations at a sublethal TBT concentration of 4.46 microg as Sn kg-1 sediment dw on life-cycle parameters and genetic variability of Chironomus riparius. Moreover, the adaptation… CONTINUE READING
