Abstract

How do suspended sediment and pesticides introduced into Iowa streams and rivers by erosion of agricultural soil affect warm water fish? This study looks at how chlorpyrifos, a widely used pesticide, and suspended sediment interact with each other in river water and their effects on the survival of larval walleye.
