The acute toxicities of five s-triazines (atrazine, prometryn, simetryn, ametryn, terbutryn) were measured using two algae (one freshwater species, Selenastrum capricornutum, and one marine species, Dunaliella tertiolecta), Microtox bacteria, and the brine shrimp, Artemia salina. The algae were one to three orders of magnitude more susceptible to tested compounds than were bacteria or brine shrimp ...
