The toxicity of different concentrations of Dithane M-45 on Drosophila melanogaster was determined. The chemical was administered by larval feeding. It has been estimated that the LC50 is 17.5 mg/100 ml food medium. The studies have suggested that Dithane M-45 has a pronounced effect on the rate of development and viability. © 1979 Birkhäuser Verlag.
