Project: Application of a battery microbiotests on river sediments of the Seine Normandy hydrographic basin.
- project duration
- 01-APR-96 – 31-DEC-99
- The project aims at detecting and quantifying the acute toxicity of river sediments with the aid of a battery cost effective microbiotests (Toxkits), with test species belonging to various fylogenetic groups. Research will also be carried out on the development of a low cost Toxkit test with the crustacean Ceriodaphnia dubia for routine toxicity monitoring.
