Title:An Algal Assay Technique for Aquatic Toxicants
Author(s):Wang, Wuncheng
algal assay
algal toxicity
oxygen production
Abstract:A technique was developed for algal toxicity assays. Algal communities obtained from several sewage treatment plants and surface waters were the test specimens. The toxicant used was zinc acetate The techniques that were developed are relatively simple, rapid, and precise. Algal responses to toxicants were measured by changes in oxygen production, and two types of responses were observed. The variations in response are caused primarily by the degree of prior acclimation of the algae to the toxicant.
