Acute toxicity of mercury, copper and zinc to a freshwater pulmonate snail, Lymnaea luteola (Lamarck)



Acute toxicity of mercury, copper and zinc to a freshwater pulmonate snail, Lymnaea luteola (Lamarck)



Acta hydrochimica et hydrobiologica(4): 381-389



The short-term toxicity of mercury, copper and zinc was studied using a freshwater pulmonate snail, Lymnaea luteola (LAMARCK). The median period of survival increases with decreasing the toxicant concentration. The 96 h LC50 values and their confidence limits were 0.135 (0.112 0.186) ppm of Hg2+; 0.172 (0.118 0.355) ppm of Cu2+; and 6.13 (5.73 to 7.19) ppm of Zn2+. The relative potency ratio indicates that the Hg2+ ions were most toxic, followed by Cu2+ and Zn2+ ions.
