Abstract
Mouthpart deformities in chironomids have been reported to indicate adverse effects of environmental pollutants. The authors assessed rates of mouthpart deformities in tributyltin-exposed, inbred, and outcrossed Chironomus riparius larvae over multiple generations. The authros found that the occurrence of mouthpart deformities was significantly correlated with inbreeding, whereas no correlation was found with the tributyltin exposure. The present study confirms the strong effect of high inbreeding rates on developmental deformities in chironomids.
