Administrative data

long-term toxicity to birds: reproduction test
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
Toxicity studies are waived because there is no need for bird toxicity testing taking into account the mammalian dataset available.
The toxicity of AQ to bird Agelaius phoeniceus was reported in IUCLID 4 file only as a remark. The results of the toxicity test referred in the file varied: LD50= 100 - 300 mg/kg. There are no other information available, thus the studies have to be considered as not assignable.

Moreover, Anthraquinone is a natural bird repellent. When birds are given the choice of seed treated with anthraquinone and anthraquinone-free seed, the birds will not eat the anthraquinone treated seed. This data has been established by USDA
