350 9 Agency App. C “No standard bioaccumulation tests have been undertaken with 1080”
365 1 Agency App. C “For a substance to be assigned [an aquatic]..9.1B..classification, the substance must also be considered bioaccumulative (which 1080 is not) and/or not rapidly degradable according to the HSNO Act criteria”
383 1 Agency App. C “the responses of plants to 1080 are highly variable. Some synthesise and hyperaccumulate the substance”
389 1 Agency App. C “In order to classify as 9.2C [soil toxicity, a substance must]..contain a component which is bioaccumulative (which 1080 is not) and/or a component which has a half-life in soil of >30 days under standard test conditions”
39 1 Applicants’ references “[1080] was translocated to the shoot with little accumulation in the root [in Helianths annus plants]” (Cooke, 1976)
150 1 Applicants’ references “Cabbage..has been shown to systemically accumulate 1080 through its roots, and subsequently become toxic to aphids” (Negherborn 1959, cited in Ogilvie et al., 1998)
151 3 Applicants’ references “Karamuramu plants will take up 1080..the highest 1080 concentration measured was 5 ppb, in leaf material 7 days after bait placement” (Ogilvie et al., 2004)
173 1 Applicants’ references “Caged wild rabbits..were [repeatedly] fed sublethal doses of..1080..Results show that in some circumstances ‘1080’ can accumulate and that its elimination from the rabbit is a slow process” (Rowley, 1963)
194 1 Applicants’ references “There was no tissue specific accumulation of [1080, up to 4 hours after intravenous injection, in mice]..however bone accumulation of [fluoride] was significant” (Sykes et al., 1987)
57 1 Committee Decision “1080 is..biodegradable in water and does not bioaccumulate”
73 2 Committee Decision “The Committee recommends..studies be carried out on the possible effects of accumulation of 1080 in aquatic plants such as watercress”
