Short-term bioassays based on lethal and reproductive responses of Tisbe battagliai were applied to determine responses of copepods to copper and LAS. Percentage of spawning females, fecundity (F), and total newborn production (N) for 48 and 72 h were calculated for both substances. It was observed percentage of spawning females was not affected by sublethal concentrations of both compounds. Following values were obtained: EC(50)(N)-48 h of 670+/-30 microgLASL(-1) and EC(50)(F)-48 h of 670+/-30… CONTINUE READING
