|Abstract||The work presented herein report the pesticide residue levels in water and sediment samples from the lake Pamvotis (N.W. Greece) as well as the corresponding ecological risk assessment. Atrazine, simazine, diazinon, malathion, ethion, carbofuran and ethion were detected in water and atrazine, diazinon and EPTC in sediments, all in ppb concentration level. Levels have a temporal variation being the highest during May-July period. In the same period the maximum percentage of the ecological risk was found to be 10.28 % and 51.8 % for water and 0.9 % and 46.9 % for sediment based on acute and chronic level respectively. Herbicides are found to be more toxic for algae whereas the toxicity for zooplankton, invertebrates and fish is mainly determined by the organophosphorus compounds.|
