Abstract
    Cultures of Lumbricillus lineatus, a dominant inhabitant of sandy shore lines, have been exposed to water-soluble fractions of crude oil (Arabian Light) through 5 generations (15 months). Although, in short-term exposure of the worms considerably reduced the fertility of eggs and hatching success of embryos. However, the depressed reproduction and general viability was in part compensated by an increased cocoon production. Mixtures of oil and the dispersants Corexit 7664 and Finasol OSR-5 proved to be drastically more toxic than oil per se, diminishing cocoon production and fertility of eggs markedly.
