Fig. 1.

Changes in PMM expressed as MV±SD (mean value, standard deviation) during different cadmium treatments. The groups were compared by LSD multiple range test followed by ANOVA. Different letters signify statistically different groups. Control cadmium is not added to food; Acute 10 (30) three-day treatment with 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food; Chronic 10 (30) cadmium treatment with 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food from hatching until sacrificing; Recovery 10 (30) three-day recovery after chronic treatments at 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food.

Norms-of reaction plots for PMM during different cadmium treatments (Control; Acute 10(30) three-day treatment with 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food; Chronic 10(30) cadmium treatment with 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food from hatching until sacrificing; Recovery 10(30) three-day recovery after chronic treatments at 10 and 30 μg Cd/g dry food. The response of a single egg mass is represented by one line.
