Toxicity of a neonicotinoid insecticide, guadipyr, in earthworm (Eisenia fetida).

Acute Toxicity of Imidacloprid to Various Life Stages of the Giant Freshwater Prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii, de Man, 1879

The results revealed that the application of imidacloprid in the paddy fields of Kuttanad has a lethal effect on post-larvae of M. rosenbergii causing a threat to the existence of species in its homeland.

Effects of a Thiamethoxam-Based Insecticide on the Life History of Chironomus xanthus

It is revealed that environmentally relevant concentrations of TMX can adversely affect chironomids populations and validates C. xanthus as a sensitive species to monitor the ecological integrity of tropical aquatic systems near intensive agricultural areas.

Effects of a novel neonicotinoid insecticide cycloxaprid on earthworm, Eisenia fetida

Cycloxaprid (CYC) is a novel neonicotinoid insecticide with high activity against resistant pests but is safe for mammals. The toxic effects of CYC on earthworms (Eisenia fetida) were studied in this

Assessment of thiamethoxam toxicity to Chironomus riparius.

Multigenerational effects of carbendazim in Daphnia magna: From a subcellular to a population level

Overall, carbendazim induced some effects at the subcellular level that translated into changes in longevity but these later vanished in terms of population effects.

Population and biomarker responses of Daphnia magna towards anticholinesterase exposures

Abstract Context: Cholinesterase (ChE) had long been employed for revealing environmental existence of anticholinesterases, and β-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGase) is a newly developed biomarker of



Reproductive effects and bioaccumulation of chlordane in Daphnia magna

A crucial role of the invertebrates in transfer of chlordane in aquatic food webs and can be used to derive a freshwater guideline for environmental protection accounting for bioaccumulation is suggested.

Acute and delayed effects of the neonicotinoid insecticide thiacloprid on seven freshwater arthropods

Assessment of effects of short-term (24-h) exposure to the neonicotinoid insecticide thiacloprid, including a postexposure observation period found delayed lethal and sublethal effects, which were observed after 4 to 12 d following exposure.

Hazard identification of imidacloprid to aquatic environment.

Comparative toxicity of four insecticides, including imidacloprid and tebufenozide, to four aquatic arthropods

The results suggest that both tebufenozide and imidacloprid would be selective insecticides that can be used with reasonable environmental safety toward nontarget aquatic crustaceans.

Resistance of Bemisia tabaci (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae) to insecticides in southern Spain with special reference to neonicotinoids.

Systemic bioassays using Spanish field populations of B tabaci collected in 1994, 1996 and 1998 indicated an increase, albeit a slow one, in resistance to imidacloprid over this period, and Comparative studies of other neonicotinoids using the same bioassay revealed a high degree of cross-resistance to acetamiprid and thiamethoxam.

Sensitivity of Eisenia fetida in comparison to Aporrectodea caliginosa and Lumbricus terrestris after imidacloprid exposure. Body mass change and histopathology

Even if E. fetida proved to be the most sensitive species in this study, general differences in sensitivity make evident that always a range of species—being representatives of an animal taxon—in ecotoxicological tests should be tested in order to avoid underestimation of effects.

Chronic toxicity of five structurally diverse demethylase-inhibiting fungicides to the crustacean Daphnia magna: a comparative assessment.

Qualitatively different toxicity profiles suggest additional, substance‐specific mechanisms of action in D. magna that probably are related to an antiecdysteroid action.
