Abstract

"it Daphnia magna/", "it Simocephalus vetulus/" and "it Pleuroxus tryncatus/" were exposed for their whole life-span to 0. 50, 100, 150, 200, 300 and 400 mug Ni l"-1". The most important conclusions are: (1) concentrations such as 50 mug l"-1" reduce survival, fertility and life expectancy; (2) the sensitivity to nickel of "it Daphnia/" is similar to that of "it Simocephalus/" but rather different from that of "it Pleuroxus/"; and (3) realistic information may be obtained only with long-term experiments.
