Dose-dependent effect of cadmium on relative growth rate (RGR) was examined in 4th instar gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L) larvae. No-observed-effect-concentration (NOEC) was shown to be 10 mgCd/g and lowest-observed-effect-concentration (LOEC) was 30 mgCd/g dry food weight. Linear relationship was found between percentage of RGR reduction and log-transformed values of cadmium concentrations. Concentrations of cadmium that lead to 50, 75, 90 and 100% RGR reduction were calculated as 65, 195 377 and 584 mgCd/g dry food weight, respectively.
