    To understand how benthic biota may respond to the additive or antagonistic effects of metal mixtures in the environment it is first necessary to examine their responses to the individual metals. In this context, laboratory controlled single metal-spiked sediment toxicity tests are useful to assess this.The exposure–dose–response relationships of Hyridella australis to cadmium-spiked sediments were,therefore, investigated in laboratory microcosms. H. australis was exposed to individual cadmium spiked sediments (
