This species currently resides, or historically resided, in several waterways that either are impacted or are under threat of impact from metals mining activities. We conducted a 55-day sub-chronic (i.e. sublethal) cadmium (Cd) exposure in water at 30 mg l(-1) (as CaCO(3)) hardness, pH 7.5, and 8 degrees C. Exposures were conducted using six replicate… CONTINUE READING
