Selected static toxicity tests were conducted with Ambush, Bolero, Bux, Dursban, Fentrifanil, Larvin, and Pydrin to determine the sensitivity of species representing four major phyla. Algal bioassays were conducted with marine algae to determine the concentration of pesticide that would inhibit population growth by 50% in 96 h. Static toxicity tests with mollusk larvae estimated the concentration of pesticide that would cause 50% of the exposed larvae to develop abnormally in 48 h. Static acute lethality tests with crustaceans and fish determined the concentration of pesticide that is lethal to 50% of the test organisms during a 96-h exposure.
