The main goal of this study was to determine the toxicological effect of DDT on the ciliate Colpoda cucullus and its potential use as a biological sensor for DDT-polluted soils. Toxicity bioassays were performed using different DDT concentrations, and an exposure time of 1 hour, with a wild strain of C. cucullus. Probit results indicate that the median lethal concentration of DDT for the C. cucullus strain is 6.68 x10–6 mol/l (M). This species does not show an observable morphological effect at… Expand
