In this laboratory study, we address the effect of Chironomus bioturbation (0, 2,000, 6,000, and 18,000 ind/m2) and sediment organic matter content (10, 20, and 40%) on the fate, distribution, and bioavailability of 14C-lindane under standardized conditions in toxicity tests with artificial sediment. The results show that both Chironomus burrowing activity and sediment organic matter strongly modify test conditions. Larval mortality and development were inversely related with Chironomus… CONTINUE READING
