Magna (MATC ¼ 77 ng/L). The UCDM criteria were also compared to criteria, or analogous values, derived by other countries. 013 mg/L for chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion, respectively, were derived in the Netherlands using a statistical extrapolation method (Crommentuijn et al. 2000). MPCs are analogous to chronic criteria, and these MPCs are all lower than the UCDM chronic criteria for these compounds, which may, in part, be because the Dutch method uses NOECs instead of MATCs in their distribution.

4 Acute Criterion Calculations The final acute data sets for both chlorpyrifos and diazinon (Tables 3 and 5) include species from each of the five taxa requirements of the SSD procedure: a warm water fish, a species in the family Salmonidae, a planktonic crustacean, a benthic crustacean, and an insect (TenBrook et al. 2010). Cumulative probability plots of the SMAVs (Figs. 1 and 2) revealed bimodal distributions for both compounds, with invertebrates encompassing the lower subset and fish and amphibians in the upper subset.

Lucius, O. clarki, O. kisutch, O. mykiss, and S. com/). Based on the available data and estimated values for animals, there is no evidence that the calculated acute and chronic criteria for chlorpyrifos, diazinon, or malathion are underprotective of TES. , in the same family), which are the most sensitive species in the data sets. There was one algal study (the only plant value) that rated RR for diazinon, but no algae species are on the federal endangered, threatened, or rare species lists. For chlorpyrifos and malathion, none of the plant studies identified rated RR, and none of the studies were for plants on the state or federal endangered, threatened, or rare species lists.
