Effects of atrazine and nicosulfuron on periphytic diatom communities in freshwater outdoor lentic mesocosms



Effects of atrazine and nicosulfuron on periphytic diatom communities in freshwater outdoor lentic mesocosms



Annales de Limnologie 37(1): 3-8



One of the agro-environmental characteristics of Brittany (France) is the extensive use of pesticides, which leads to high concentrations of atrazine in continental water systems. Periphytic algae play a basic part in aquatic ecosystems and some of them, diatoms are highly sensitive to environmental changes. Analyses of diatoms can thus indicate the impact of a herbicide on aquatic systems. We compared the effects of two herbicides (atrazine and nicosulfuron) on an aquatic ecosystem in 1998.
