Development of an acute toxicity test with the tropical marine amphipod Parhyale hawaiensis
It is concluded that P. hawaiensis can be successfully cultured in standardized conditions and be effectively used in acute toxicity testing, and will enable standardized and reproducible ecotoxicology investigations in understudied and vulnerable tropical marine ecosystems. Expand
환경성 PAHs 노출과 생체지표 연구
Results indicated that urinary 1-OHPG and 2-naphthol levels were related with different ambient particulate air pollution, type of heating fuels and ETS. Expand
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) such as anthracene are ubiquitous pollutants that are normally not considered acutely toxic to aquatic organisms because they are only sparingly soluble inExpand
Effects of experimental oil exposure on the fauna associated with Corallina officinalis L. in intertidal rock pools
Field and laboratory experiments on the effects of small-scale pollution by unweathered Ekofisk crude oil on the fauna of intertidal rock pools were carried out in western Norway and behavioural tests demonstrate differences in responses to oil among species. Expand
Impact of amoco cadiz oil spill on the muddy fine sand Abra alba and Melinna palmata community from the Bay of Morlaix
Thirteen quantitative quarterly samples of the Abra alba-Melinna palmata community from the Bay of Morlaix (France) were taken from August 1977 to August 1980. The quantitative and qualitativeExpand
Fate and effects of Ekofisk crude oil in the littoral of a Norwegian fjord
Abstract Field experimental studies of the effects of Ekofisk crude oil on the intertidal rocky-shore and rock-pool faunas were carried out in a fjord in western Norway. Chemical analyses indicate aExpand
Threshold for detection of naphthalene and other behavioral responses by the blue crab,Callinectes sapidus
Using behavioral criteria developed in previous studies, the threshold concentration at which the blue crab,Callinectes sapidus, detected the petroleum hydrocarbon naphthalene was found to be 10−7Expand
Toxicity of a fuel oil to the eggs of parhyale hawaiensis and amphithoe valida (amphipoda)
The toxicity of fuel oil to the two amphipod eggs is dependent on the concentration and duration of exposure on the one hand, and on the developmental stages and probably the nature of the egg case on the other. Expand
Individual and combined toxicity of some petroleum aromatics to the marine amphipod Elasmopus pectenicrus
Toxicity of 4 components of petroleum oils to the marine amphipod Elasmopus pectenicrus (Bate) has been assessed and it is indicated that the LC50 levels were primarily determined by the more toxic substances, A and B. Expand


Survival of two species of amphipods in aqueous extracts of petroleum oils
Aqueous extracts of two petroleum oils, No. 2 fuel oil and Southern Louisiana crude, were tested on two amphipods, Gammarus muccronatus and Amphithoe valida, for survival, finding that the amphipod are more sensitive to aqueously extracts of these oils than benthic polychaetes and shrimp. Expand
Characteristics of dispersions and water-soluble extracts of crude and refined oils and their toxicity to estuarine crustaceans and fish
The quantitative hydrocarbon composition and behavior in seawater of water-soluble fractions (WSF) and oil-in-water dispersions (OWD) of 4 oils was investigated and the WSFs and OWDs of the refined oils were considerably more toxic to the 6 test species than were those of the crude oils. Expand
