Ecotoxicological information

Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

Currently viewing:

Administrative data

toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods: long-term
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Secondary source; data review and critical evaluation, acceptable for assessment

Data source

Reference Type:
review article or handbook

Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Determination of terrestrial toxicity of single polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) towards various soil-dwelling organismens: The exclusive consideration of PAH data is justified as follows:
1. Pyrene is water insoluble and thus bioavailable only to very limited extent.
2. Direct and indirect environmental exposure by pyrene is very unlikely.
3. Environmental exposure may occur only through release of PAHs during application.
