Abstract: Pollution in the natural aquatic environment is erratic and manifests as temporary increments of chemical concentrations, pulses. Traditional ecotoxicological testing does not consider intermittent exposures and does not consider the post-exposure period even though latent effects may occur. Sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima, L.) was exposed to pulses of seven antifouling compounds with different mechanisms of action and marine periphyton were exposed to pulses of a photosystem-II inhibitor ... more
