Pyrethroids play an important role in modern agriculture but their use is not without risks to non-target organisms and habitats. They have high toxicity to a broad spectrum of aquatic organisms. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of low concentration (0.02 μg l(-1)) of two widely used pyrethroids--cypermethrin and deltamethrin on phyto- and zooplankton. The acute bioassays were conducted using Chlorella vulgaris and Thamnocephalus platyurus. Then, the chronic bioassays were…

Acute and Chronic Effects of a Glyphosate and a Cypermethrin-Based Pesticide on a Non-Target Species Eucypris sp. Vavra, 1891 (Crustacea, Ostracoda)
Ostracoda species are indicators of their current and past environment (paleoenvironment). The study aims to evaluate the acute and chronic sensitivities of a freshwater ostracod species (Eucypris
Effects of Deltamethrin and Endosulfan on the Population Growth of Brachionus calyciflorus at Different Algal (Scenedesmus obliquus) Densities
The present results show the important role of algal density on influencing the toxicities of deltamethrin and endosulfan to rotifers.
Synergy between glyphosate and cypermethrin formulations on zooplankton: evidences from a single-specie test and a community mesocosm experiment
It is suggested to continue analyzing pesticide mixture effects on the basis of complementary scales of analysis to reach more environmentally relevant information.
Lethal and sub-lethal effects of cypermethrin and glyphosate on the freshwater's copepod, Acanthocyclops robustus.
Females and nauplii survival was affected by both pesticides and A. robustus is then more sensitive to cypermethrin compared to glyphosate, which could affect it population and then all the ecosystem biodiversity.
Energy budget in Alona guttata (Chydoridae: Aloninae) and toxicant-induced alterations
A significant correlation was found between the natural rate of population increase and the caloric content, which demonstrates the suitability of these biomarkers as endpoints of early warning that allow inferring alterations at higher biological levels.

Effects of lindane and deltamethrin on zooplankton communities of experimental ponds
Two insecticides, lindane and deltamethrin were employed in a four mesocosm experiment to asses the impact of water pollution by pesticides and resistance of the different zooplankton species was variable and depended upon both the group and the insecticide concentration.

Effects of esfenvalerate on aquatic organisms in littoral enclosures
The effects of esfenvalerate on plant and animal communities were observed in 12 littoral enclosures in a 2-ha pond near Duluth, Minnesota, at six concentrations for eight weeks and resulted in drastic reductions or elimination of most crustaceans, chironomids, juvenile bluegills, and larval cyprinids.
Toxicology of Synthetic Pyrethroids in Aquatic Organisms: An Overview
Fenvalerate was more toxic to larvae than was the emulsifiable concentrate formulation, and addition of different concentrations of humic acid to the water reduced the toxicity to the larvae.
Contamination and effects in freshwater ditches resulting from an aerial application of cypermethrin.
The use of conventional bioassays, microbiotests, and some “rapid” methods in the selection of an optimal test battery for the assessment of pesticides toxicity
Principal component analysis (PCA) separated unicellular and multicellular organisms in regard to their sensitivity to pesticides and provided more detailed insight into the “connections” within the separated group of biotests.
