Abstract
Chronic tests were conducted with Daphnia magna (cladoceran) and Chironomus tentans (midge) to determine their usefulness as test organisms for chronic sediment assays, and to estimate the potential long-term impact of contaminated freshwater sediments and contaminated Superfund site soils on freshwater invertebrates. These two species have been used successfully in acute sediment tests and have been shown to be useful in chronic tests in water.
