[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data relates to the relative sensitivity of five species of aquatic
macrophytes and six species of algae to four commonly used herbicides
(atrazine, metribuzin, alachlor, and metoachlor). Toxicity tests consisted of
96 hour (duckweed and algae) or 14 day (submerged macrophytes) static
exposures. The triazine herbicides (atrazine and metribuzin) were
significantly more toxic to aquatic ... View entire text

Purpose: This study was conducted to determine the relative sensitivities of five species of macrophytes and six species of algae to atrazine, metribuzine, alachlor, and metolachlor.
