LD50 means the following:
If you have 100 animals, what is the concentration of a certain poison that you have to use to kill 50?
Said in another way: if a certain concentration of a poison kills 50% of a population of animals, than that concentration of that poison is the LD50 for that animal!
Greetings, Gerard
