I am doing a project and I wanted to test how
does dioxin affect the burrowing speed of a mole
crab. I Know dioxin is really toxic, but I was
wondering if we could work with it or not. If
not, do you have any suggestions on another
product or pesticide, something that is harming
or is in the ocean that may affect the speed?
Thank you very much
Dioxin is bad stuff - I wouldn't recommend
playing with it. The same goes for most other
poisons you might want to look at. Honestly,
though, I'm not sure that burrowing speed is what
you want to investigate anyway; you're likely to
get a mix of individuals who are able to shrug off
the toxin (and are unaffected) and others who
succumb to it (and die).
