Aflatoxin β1, generated by Aspergillus fungi, inhibited growth and formed adducts with DNA by activation of the Cytochrome P system (Leung et al. 2010). 7 Other Chemicals In addition to the above groups, C. elegans has been reported as a biological model for assessing the toxicity induced by other chemicals (Table 7) such as sodium fluoride (Li et al. 2012b), vinyl chloride (Nam and An 2010), benzo pyrene [a] and β-naphthoflavone (Leung et al. 2010), ethyl methanesulfonate and DMSO (Boyd et al.

Concentration and speciation data on chemicals in interstitial water can be important lines of evidence for assessing risks of contaminated sediment in aquatic ecosystems. In many depositional sediments, interstitial waters are relatively static (Adams et al. , Di Toro et al. 1991). Although not the only exposure medium in a sediment environment, pore water is a key route of exposure for aquatic organisms (Chapman et al. 2002). Measuring contaminant levels in interstitial waters is useful for estimating aquatic toxicity (Ankley et al.
