The objective of the study was to develop better techniques for studying pesticides in aquatic model ecosystems. To achieve this objective, a model ecosystem was designed and built that utilizes the continuous dosing, flow-through system routinely used for chronic fish toxicity testing in combination with the organisms used in static model ecosystem testing. A previously developed recirculating static model ecosystem (simulating a sediment or erosional pesticide source) was simultaneously used with the flowing water system (simulating an effluent pesticide source) to test the behavior of three pesticides (pentachloronitrobenzene (PCNB), simazine, and trifluralin). Conditions in the static system favored pesticide degradation while the flowing system insured continuous pesticide exposure to the organisms.
