Summary

Toxicity tests (28-d early-life-stage) were conducted to determine the effects of nine combinations of salinity (15, 20, 25 ppt) and temperature (22, 27, 32-degrees-c) on the toxicity of 2,4-dinitrophenol (2,4-dnp) and 4-nitrophenol (4-np) to sheepshead minnows (cyprinodon variegatus). The highest tested concentration having no observed effect (noec) on mortality and growth was derived weekly. The noecs at test termination indicated that the survival and growth of fish exposed to 2,4-dinitrophenol were not significantly affected by salinity, temperature, or the salinity temperature interaction. However, 28-d noecs of fish surviving from 4-nitrophenol exposures were significantly affected by temperature, but the highest value exceeded [...]
