Abstract :

Impact of Acute and Chronic toxicity on oxygen consumption of freshwater bivalve, Lamellidens marginalis was studied. The bivalves were exposed to Acute and Chronic doses of organophosphate pesticide, Triazophos (40% EC). The rate of oxygen consumption for acute treatment was recorded after 24, 48, 72 and 96 hrs. While for chronic treatment, was recorded for 7, 14 and 21 days. The observations indicate that the rate of oxygen consumption was found to be decreased with increase in exposure period.
