Abstract

The gametes and embryos of Paracentrotus lividus were exposed to purified and nonpurified effluents of a paper plant together with tap water. The toxicity of purified and non-purified effluents were resembled. Most severe pathologic cases were evident with the tap water. In general, developmental defects were increased with decreasing salinity at all test solutions.
