Predicting the joint algal toxicity of multi-component s-triazine mixtures at low-effect concentrations of individual toxicants.

Herbicidal s-triazines are widespread contaminants of surface waters. They are highly toxic to algae and other primary producers in aquatic systems. This results from their specific interference with photosynthetic electron transport. Risk assessment for aquatic biota has to consider situations of simultaneous exposure to various of these toxicants. In… CONTINUE READING
