Additional information

There is sufficient information available on the short term toxicity of 2 -(2 -methoxyethoxy)ethanol to Daphnia Magna from studies that were carried out to acceptable methods to be able to judge that the substance is of very low toxicity to invertebrates. No effects were seen at the highest concentrations tested in two of the studies and the third established an EC50 above these levels. The latter result is used for the key parameter EC50 for this taxonomic group.
