Influence of bromide on the performance of the amphipod Hyalella azteca in reconstituted waters
Poor performance of the amphipod Hyalella azteca has been observed in exposures using reconstituted waters. Previous studies have reported success in H. azteca water‐only exposures with the addition of relatively high concentrations of bromide. The present study evaluated the influence of lower environmentally representative concentrations of bromide on the response of H. azteca in 42‐d water‐only exposures. Improved performance of H. azteca was observed in reconstituted waters with >0.02 mg Br/L. Environ Toxicol Chem 2016;9999:1–5. Published 2016 Wiley Periodicals Inc. on behalf of SETAC.
