Description

Data from article "Neonicotinoid insecticide mixtures: evaluation of laboratory-based toxicity predictions under semi-controlled field conditions", where 21 in-situ limnocorrals were placed in an experimental pond in Canada's Prairie Pothole Region (National Wildlife Area, St. Denis, Saskatchewan, Canada) and continuously dosed with neonicotinoids (imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam; as single compounds and in binary mixtures) for 56-days. Emerging aquatic insects were continuously collected and emergence, biomass, and sex-ratios of aquatic insects (particularly Chironomidae) were evaluated. This data-set contains raw data associated with the study, including uncorrected measured neonicotinoid concentrations in the experimental limnocorrals, water chemistry, aquatic insect abundance, and cumulative emergence, biomass, and sex ratios of emerged Chironomidae.
