A long-term experiment was performed with Branchiura sowerbyi in order to assess possible effects of LAS sorbed to sediment on its reproductive cycle, using concentrations in sediment 2–5 times higher than those calculated for the LC50 values of LAS dissolved in water. No significant effects were observed during the whole experiment, so that we can confirm that LAS adsorbed on sediment has a much lower influence on the examined animals than LAS dissolved in water.

Abstract

A long-term experiment was performed with Branchiura sowerbyi in order to assess possible effects of LAS sorbed to sediment on its reproductive cycle, using concentrations in sediment 2–5 times higher than those calculated for the LC50 values of LAS dissolved in water. No significant effects were observed during the whole experiment, so that we can confirm that LAS adsorbed on sediment has a much lower influence on the examined animals than LAS dissolved in water.
