    Ecological Risk Assessment: From Book-Keeping to Chemical Stress Ecology PAUL J. VAN DEN BRINK Alterra & Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management, Wageningen University, The Netherlands To best address the effect of chemicals in the environment, extrapolation from single species to ecosystems must be understood and modeled.

    Reviews that summarize the fate and effects of anthropogenic chemicals in seagrass ecosystems are also available. However, these reviews, with few exceptions, have been usually either chemical or species specific. The objective of this review is to provide an expanded perspective on the fate and effects of anthropogenic chemicals on seagrasses. Stresses on ecosystems and hence on humans have many important sources, including chemicals, mining, farming and forestry, and—perhaps even more serious—living conditions, levels of education and health care, and life-style y, this forum could not deal with all those sources and chose to concentrate on some that might be addressed with specific technology assessments and.

    Ecotoxicology faces the challenge of assessing and predicting the effects of an increasing number of chemical stressors on aquatic species and ecosystems. Herein we review currently applied tools in ecological risk assessment, combining information on exposure with expected biological effects or environmental water quality standards; currently applied effect-based tools are presented based on Cited by: Environmental chemistry is becoming increasingly crucial in understanding important issues that range from climate change to local pollution problems. It is the study of the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in the environment. It also studies the effects of these chemicals on ecosystems, animals, and human health.

Toxic effects due to a combination of chemicals When an organism is exposed to two or more chemicals, their joint action may be: (a) independent -- when the chemicals produce different effects or have different modes of action; (b) additive -- when the magnitude of an effect or response produced by two or more chemicals is numerically.

Description: Focusing on state-of-the-art biological testing and methods used for aquatic ecosystem health assessment, Ecotoxicological Testing of Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems evaluates the latest bioassay techniques and different types of water and sediment quality assessments.

The book also explores multi-tiered approaches to making.the abiotic factors of the ecosystems.
