Entry ID: K026_1997_1998_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The sensitivities of three species of necrophagous marine amphipods to a range of reference toxicants in the water and the effect of UV light exposure on the sensitivity of fluroanthene exposed (a PAH compound derived from fuel oils and present in Winter Quarters Bay sediments) and Winter Quarters Bay (WQB) sediment exposed amphipods was investigated in laboratory exposure experiments. Adults and ... View entire text
