Additional information

Due to the technical challenges of testing volatile substances, a TLM-EqP modeling framework was used to support terrestrial effect values derived experimentally and are presented as supporting studies. These data were considered reliable and comparable to experimentally derived values. According to the TLM QSAR modelling, the most sensitive species for both short term (LL50) and long term (NOELR) endpoints was Folsomia candida. The F candida LL50 values range were between 12.417 - 41.844 mg/kg soil dw, with m-xylene the test substance predicted to have the lowest value. The NOELR values range between 2.379 - 8.016 mg/kg soil dw, with m-xylene the test substance predicted to have the lowest value.

The Draft Screening Assessment Report (Environment Canada 2014) reports a 14 day NOEC for earthworms of 16 mg/kg dw from ESG International (2002).

The Draft Screening Assessment Report (Environment Canada 2014) presents results from ESG International (2002) for Collembola of 14 day LC25 of 259 mg/kg dw (fine clay loam).
