Cross‐tolerance in amphibians: Wood frog mortality when exposed to three insecticides with a common mode of action

0
Insecticide tolerance and cross‐tolerance in nontarget organisms is often overlooked despite its potential to buffer natural systems from anthropogenic influence. The authors exposed wood frog tadpoles from 15 populations to three acetylcholine esterase‐inhibiting insecticides and found widespread variation in insecticide tolerance and evidence for cross‐tolerance to these insecticides. The present study demonstrates that amphibian populations with tolerance to one pesticide may be tolerant to many other pesticides. Environ. Toxicol. Chem. © 2013 SETAC
