Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of the organophosphorothioate pesticide diazinon, its metabolite diazinon oxon and diazinon in a commercial formulation on the freshwater amphipod Gammarus pulex. It was found that diazinon in the commercial formulation was significantly more toxic to G. pulex than diazinon oxon, which in turn was significantly more toxic than diazinon.
