INRAM field bioassays: integrated experiment 2008/2009 [INRAM bioassays in het veld: geïntegreerd experiment 2008/2009]
Laboratory of Environmental Toxicology and Aquatic Ecology, Ugent; Marine Biology Section, Ugent. Belgium. INRAM. Field Bioassays - SSD - Belgian Science Policy. [accessed on ‘date’]

Access data
Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

This database contains the test endpoints determined for organisms which were subjected to bioassays in the field. more

Cages were deployed at the INRAM sampling sites. Test organisms were collected at uncontaminated sites and transplanted (in cages) to the sampling stations. After exposure, the organisms were transferred to the lab and the selected endpoints were measured using the same methods as those applied in the laboratory exposure experiments.
