Additional information

The lowest 48 hour EC50 was reported by Janssen and Persoone (1993). The study design followed the standard OECD 202 guideline and used Daphnia magna. Although this study only reports nominal exposure concentrations it is selected as the key study as it was identified as such in the EU RAR for benzene (2008).
