Abstract. Plasticizers such as di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) and tris (2-butoxyethyl) phosphate (TBOEP) are manufactured chemicals produced in high volumes. These chemicals are frequently detected in the aquatic environment and cause toxic efects on organisms. In this study, we assessed the chronic impacts of DEHP and TBOEP, respectively, at the concentration of 100 µg L−1 dissolved in the artifcial medium (M4/4) and Mekong River water on life history traits of a tropical microcrustacean, Ceriodaphnia cornuta, for 14 days. DEHP and TBOEP substantially reduced the survival of C. cornuta. In M4/4 medium, both plasticizers strongly enhanced reproduction but did not infuence the growth of C. cornuta. Mekong River water, plasticizers-exposed C. cornuta produced less neonates than those in the control. The detrimental impacts of DEHP and TBOEP on the ftness of C. cornuta were much stronger in natural river water than in M4/4. Our results suggest that plasticizers can cause adverse efects on tropical freshwater cladocerans, particularly in natural water. These results are of a deep concern, as national and international regulatory guidelines which are based on ecotoxicological tests using standard media may not fully capture these efects.

Project description The availability of High Resolution Imagery (spatial, spectral, and radiometric) with an increased time revisit (Landsat-8 and now Sentinel-2) opens the way to a more detailed observation of coastal zones and inland waters (large rivers, lakes and reservoirs)
