ECOLYME : 'Evaluating and improving the ecological relevance of Lymnaea stagnalis chronic metal toxicity estimates' : final report

Boek - Rapport

In this research we have found indications that the food source plays an important role in size related endpoints such as dry blotted weight, length and growth rate. Lettuce fed Lymnaea stagnalis individuals are more sensitive for copper toxicity at size related endpoints than Tetramin fed individuals. However there appears to be no difference in survival between snails fed with Tetramin and snails fed with lettuce exposed to copper. We have also found that our L. stagnalis individuals are less sensitive to copper than other studies in literature.
