The acute and chronic toxicity of ammonia (expressed as un-ionized ammonia nitrogen, NH3 -N) to Daphnia magna was determined in support of the development of site-specific water quality standards for ammonia in the Tittabawassee River at Midland, Michigan. The 48-h LC50 value (95% confidence interval) obtained was 2.94 (2.70 to 3.22) mg NH3 -N/L. The 21-d… CONTINUE READING
