Abstract

Both neonicotinoids and varying pH levels affect odonate growth rates, which in turn can affect fitness. This proposal aims to assess how the combined stress of living in nonneutral water (pH = 5.0, 6.0, 8.0, and 9.0) and being exposed to a continuous, sublethal dose of 0.02 μg/L of the neonicotinoid imidacloprid will affect Anax junius stadia growth rates. Mortality rates will also be measured.
