An Autoradiographic Study of Invertebrate Uptake of DDT-CL36

Publication Date


This research sought to locate autoradiographically DDT-C136 in tissues of leeches, amphipods, and copepods three months after their marsh habitat was treated with the amount of insecticide routinely used for mosquito control. Isotope DDT or its metabolite was found in cytoplasm of nerve cell bodies, gut mucosa, and vascular tissue of leeches. No isotope DDT was detected in the tissue of amphipods and copepods.
