Toxicological effects of burrow pit effluent from a waste dump on periwinkle (Tympanotonus fuscatus linne)

  Burrow pit effluent collected from a waste dump site in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria was subjected to sublethal test using periwinkle (Tympanotonus fuscatus linne). This was to ascertain if the heavy metals and organic constituents in the burrow pit effluent bioaccumulated in the tissues of the organisms. The test was conducted using the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) protocol...
