Abstract

Summary

Sodium pentachlorophenate can be quantitatively estimated in natural waters by observing the mortality rate of the common guppy, . The test requires evaluation of mortality rate curves for specific dosages covering the range of conditions to be encountered in the field. Quantitative field determinations are obtained from a comparison of the unknown with the standard mortality curves. Use of this method gives reliable results necessary for effective mollusciciding operations. Materials required are those normally found in the field.
