Sludge reduction by Lumbriculus variegatus
in Ahvaz wastewater treatment plant.
Ng and Wood (2008) reported that the gut had the highest Cd concentration, followed sequentially by the kidney, liver, gill and carcass in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, fed the oligochaete, Lumbriculus variegatus
, exposed to different concentrations of waterborne Cd.
Trolox[TM] has also been shown to have direct therapeutic effects in Lumbriculus variegatus
being capable of blocking copper toxicity at low concentrations whilst itself being toxic at high doses .
Anaerobic metabolism in the oligochaete Lumbriculus variegatus
The dominating species of oligochaetes were Lumbriculus variegatus
(Muller), Limnodrilus udekemianus Clap.
Additive toxicity of binary mixtures of phototoxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to the oligochaete Lumbriculus variegatus
pH-dependent toxicity of Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb, and Zn to Ceriodaphnia dubia, Pimophales promelas, Hyalella azteca, and Lumbriculus variegatus
Using Lumbriculus variegatus
, (California blackworms) the participants performed an experiment they can use in their classrooms to introduce toxicology.
