- ... The toxicities of three oil products with boiling-point ranges representative of petroleum hydrocarbons were tested on earthworms (Eisenia fetida) to investigate the correlation between bioaccumulated concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and toxicity. The toxicities to earthworms were in the sequence: kerosene > diesel > bunker-C. After 14 days, the LC50s of the soils contamin ...
