Additional information

A laboratory study conducted under international guidelines and GLPs and a field study report no bioaccumulation of DecaBDE in earthworms. Multigenerations of earthworms were presumably exposed to DecaBDE in the field study. A lack of bioaccumulation is consistent with DecaBDE's high propensity to adsorb to soil and its negligible water solubility.
