|Title:||Responses of Perna indica (Bivalvia) exposed to realistic levels of heavy metals (Hg,Cu,Cd)|
Menon, N R
|Abstract:||The toxic effect of Hg, Cu and Cd applied in concert, on the life of Perna indica was investigated. The results indicate that Cu was the most toxic among the three metals tested, when present in combination. The combined action of the three metals was either less than additive or simple additive. Shifting of toxicity in the triad combinations was found to be controlled either by Hg or the Cu concentration. The toxicity indices were found inadequate to assess the combined toxicity of triad metal mixture.|
