Description of key information

Twenty-four NOEC/EC10 values are available for toxicity of Zn to reproduction of terrestrial arthropods, representing 2 different species and ranging between 14.6 and 1000 mg Zn/kg dw (both for Folsomia candida). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In total 61 individual high quality NOEC or EC10 values for reproduction of terrestrial invertebrates are selected for the PNEC derivation. Twenty-four NOEC/EC10 values are available for toxicity of Zn to reproduction of terrestrial arthropods, representing 2 different species and ranging between 14.6 and 1000 mg Zn/kg dw (both for Folsomia candida; Lock and Janssen, 2001c and Lock et al., 2003). 

All toxicity data are expressed as added Zn concentration in soil, based on either the nominal dose added or on measured, background corrected soil Zn concentrations.
