The collembolan Folsomia fimetaria was exposed to a range of elevated copper (Cu) concentrations in a LUFA-Speyer soil for 7, 14, and 21 d, in a microcosm test. The results showed that F. fimetaria was sensitive to copper, with reproduction being a more sensitive parameter of effect than either growth (measured as final body size) or survivorship. A 10% effective concentration (EC10) of 38 mg Cu/kg was calculated for reproduction, and an EC10 between 509 to 845 mg Cu/kg (depending on sex and… CONTINUE READING
