Abstract

Female fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) exposed to copper (Cu) maternally transfer Cu tolerance to their larval offspring. Larvae produced after female parents received a sublethal 5-d, 100 μg/L Cu exposure had significantly greater survivorship in potentially lethal Cu solutions than larvae produced before those females were exposed to Cu.
