abstract
This research aims at determining the ecotoxicity of sediments - on a routine basis - with the aid of 2 acute aquatic toxicity tests (24h test with Thamnocephalus platyurus and 72h test with Selenastrum capricornutum) and a limited toxicity identification procedure. A total of 90 sediments will be assessed.
