[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Aquatic plant toxicity tests are frequently conducted in environmental risk
assessments to determine the potential impacts of contaminants on primary
producers. An examination of published plant toxicity data demonstrates that
wide differences in sensitivity can occur across phylogenetic groups of plants.
Yet relatively few studies have been conducted with the specific intent to
compare the ... View entire text

Purpose: The objective of this study was to compare the relative sensitivity of Selenastrum capricornutum and Lemna minor to sixteen herbicides. Studies were conducted to provide basic toxicological information as well as to compare the relative sensitivity of the two species both within and across different classes of herbicides.
