In this work we evaluated the effect of temperature (22 degrees and 27 degrees C), algal density (Chlorella vulgaris 0.5 x 10(6) and 2.0 x 10(6) cells/mL) and different combinations of 2 heavy metals (Zn at 25.25-101.0 microg/L and Cu at 17.75-71.0 microg/L) on the population level variables of Moina macrocopa. Median lethal concentration (24 h bioassay at 1 x 10(6) cells/mL of algal diet) of Zn and Cu for M. macrocopa were 1010 microg/L and 710 microg/L, respectively. In the survivorship… CONTINUE READING
