Abstract
    There are astonishingly few papers on the toxicological or metabolic effects on the generally more susceptible stages of the life cycle. Most experiments were carried out with different experimental parameters (temperature, salinity, species). The most important data are lacking: contents and spectrum of hydrocarbons in the test medium. The data given in the papers are tabulated and compared. It is, however, impossible to draw a general conclusion or see a connecting pattern of influence of hydrocarbons. Corresponding field observations on eggs and larvae do not exist.
