Basic behaviour: the use of animal locomotion in behavioural ecotoxicology


, : Basic behaviour: the use of animal locomotion in behavioural ecotoxicology. Behavioural ecotoxicology: 211-230

This chapter highlights the use of locomotor behaviour (reactive, forced and spontaneous locomotion) as a general biomarker of toxic stress in animals, particularly invertebrates.
