The present study with Daphnia magna determined the chronic effects of one inorganic and two organic mercury compounds on survival and reproduction; plus the determination of the relative uptake, body accumulation and loss of inorganic and organic mercury. In addition, behavioral studies were made of the different forms of mercury in renewed-static and flow-through systems.
