ABSTRACT

On the base of literature date and author's own researches effects of heavy metals on chemoreception and behavior of crustaceans are reviewed. Elevated concentration of metals, as compared with background, was shown to disturb chemoreception and connected with it behavior of crustaceans. Modifications of the crustaceans' behavior occur under concentration and expositions significantly lower than LC50 in acute experiments.
