In light of current interest in better understanding the environmental impact of atmospheric particulate matter (PM), a new strategy has been employed to screen the relative toxicities of ambient and source aerosols. Short-term and acute aquatic bioassays using Ceriodaphnia dubia and a green alga (Selenastrum capricornutum) as test organisms have been in use for many years in the regulation of wastewater effluents. These tests have been employed in the present study to compare the toxicity of… CONTINUE READING
