3 g/kg TNT, but none of the birds died thereafter during the study. Histopathology and sensitive indicators of immune function were evaluated. The effects included a dose-dependent and nonsignificant dampening of the total red blood cell count, packed cell volume, total plasma protein, blood prolymphocytes, blood lymphocytes, an increase in late apoptotic or necrotic blood leukocytes, and minor hemosiderosis of the liver. The authors noted that significant erythrolytic anemia was not the major target of toxicity in quail, which was most likely due to the refractory nature of the avian hematological and vascular system.

41] where no adverse effects were reported up to 59 mg TNT/kg soil. 78 mM; Induced malformation Changes in respiratory rhythm decrease in motor activities, salvation, and muscle tone changes, changes in skin color and ocular signs Mortality about 20%, decrease in body weight and snout vent lengths from lowest exposure concentration No adverse health effects were observed during 14-day exposure in soil matrix [39] Two salamanders died during the first week in 1,500 mg/kg and two others from 3000 mg/kg.
