The chronic effect of the herbicide banvel d on daphnia magna

The chronic effect of the herbicide banvel d on daphnia magna

A study of the effect of the herbicide banvel-D in concentrations of 2.8-67 mg/l, was carried out on 5 generations of a laboratory culture of D. magna. The survival of Daphnias at concentrations of 2.8-11.5 mg/l corresponded to that of controls in all 5 generations. At a concentration of 23 mg/l survival decreased beginning with the 2nd generation (to 10-26%), and at 67 mg/l from the 1st generation on (to 53-0%). Fecundity tended to increase at all concentrations in the initial and the first 3 generations but decreased at 67 mg/l in the 4th generation to 44%. In weakened, dying daphnids (concentrations 23-67 mg/l) the body size of newborn young decreased with each brood.

Acute and chronic toxicity tests with propanil were conducted on Daphnia magna. The 24 and 48 h LC50 were 43.74 and 5.01 mg/l respectively. Chronic toxicity tests were carried out using sublethal propanil concentrations (0.07, 0.10, 0.21 and 0.55...

Vertical migrations of Daphnia coincide with changes of light intensity. These displacements persist under constant conditions, suggesting the existence of an endogenous component acting in the migration mechanisms. This component was investigated...
