Abstract

Glucosinolates are compounds produced by commercial crops which can hydrolyse in a range of natural toxins that may exert detrimental effects on beneficial soil organisms. This study examined the effects of 2-phenylethyl isothiocyanate and 3-phenylpropionitrile on the survival and growth of the woodlouse Porcellio scaber exposed for 28d. 2-Phenylethyl isothiocyanate dissipated from the soil with half-lives ranging from 19 to 96h. Exposure through soil showed toxic effects only on survival. The LC50s after 28d were significantly different at 65.3mgkg
