No detected toxic concentrations in in situ algal growth inhibition tests--a convenient approach to aquatic ecotoxicology.

Abstract

A newly proposed three-dimensional model for the effects of heavy metals on the growth of batch cultures of algae that allows the estimation of the no detected toxic effect concentration (NDEC) is presented. Two batch assays with exposure to copper were investigated in situ. As an endpoint in the in situ studies of ecotoxicology, the carrying capacity, a… (More)
