Environmental Toxicology, Ecotoxicology


Ecotoxicology is a branch of science concerned with the study of toxic effects on ecosystems. Environmental toxicology focuses on toxic effects on individual organisms. The methods and knowledge of biology, toxicology, environmental chemistry and ecology are used.

Ecotoxicology essentially serves to identify hazards at all organizational levels of biology: at the level of molecules (such as DNA), cells, tissues, organs, the population, ecosystems and the biosphere.

Online available information resources on environmental toxicology, ecotoxicology. See also: ecotoxicological testing services.
