Ecotoxicity Study for Mayflies Exposed to Elevated Concentrations of Sulfate

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

Across the United States, sulfate concentrations tend to be elevated in areas where acid rain or coal mining is present. This project measures responses of six mayfly species exposed to elevated sulfate concentrations in water from three Exceptional Value streams in Pennsylvania as well as in White Clay Creek at the Stroud Center.
