THE AFFECT OF NUTRIENTS OVER ECOTOXICOLOGICAL RESPONSES OF AQUATIC SPECIES (CANDIDA ALBICANS AND PHAEODACTYLUM TRICORNUTUM)
Journal Title:International Journal of Medical Studies
Study shows a primary evaluation on the effect of nutrient loads and toxicant exposure on cell growth of aquatic species comparing results obtained by a well−standardized test on algal specie (Phaeodactylum tricornutum) and yeast, using a recent specie of ecotoxicological interest (Candida albicans). Results obtained suggest a significant effect due to nutrient loads on cells growth in both species affecting toxicity of the tested chemical. Furthermore, yeast responses are faster and comparable to results obtained on algae species.
