Summary

This dataset describes histopathological changes in liver, kidney, gonad, and spleen of zebra finches exposed to 15mg/kg, 30mg/kg or 60mg/kg clothianidin (CTD) in water or on millet seed. The goal of the project is to develop a subacute neonicotinoid toxicity model using zebra finches as a model passerine. We have completed two acute toxicity trials using CTD insecticide. Based on these studies, we estimate the no observable effect level (NOAEL) and the lowest observable effect level (LOAEL) for CTD in zebra finches to be 15 and 30 mg/kg body weight, respectively, and the concentration producing a toxic effect in 50% of treated birds (EC50) to be approximately 150 mg/kg. We next exposed birds for 7 days to CTD in drinking water at [...]
