Effects of silver nanoparticles to the freshwater snail Physa acuta: The role of test media and snails' life cycle stage

Abstract:

Silver nanoparticles (AgNP) are highly used worldwide, which will most likely lead to their release to the environment and subsequently increase environmental concentrations. Therefore studying AgNPs' deleterious effects to organisms is crucial to understand their environmental impacts. The freshwater snail Physa acuta was chosen to evaluate the potential deleterious effects of AgNP and counterpart AgNO3 , through water only exposures. AgNPs' toxicity is greatly influenced by medium compositi...
