A comparison of acute toxicity methodologies for Bombus spp.

View preprint
From the Raine Lab at @uofg - a review of bumble bee LD50 and LC50 tests. There is inconsistency in current analyses of acute toxicity to bumble bees, and acute toxicity values can differ substantially between studies. https://t.co/7nbeUtxOqj
