Environmental and Ecotoxicology

Environmental toxicology is a field of science which studies the harmful effects of different physical, biological, physical and chemical agents on living things, while ecotoxicology focuses on studying the effects of toxicants at the level of population and ecosystem. Organisms may come into contact with different toxicants throughout their lifetime, and different organism may respond differently to specific toxicant. Position in the food web can also affect the toxicity of any compound which may be because of the bioaccumulation of the toxic compound.

 

Environmental toxicology is the study of toxic effects of chemicals on the human beings and all other living organisms on the earth. The toxicologists have a very important role in predicting the cause of the toxicity and hence take the necessary actions to prevent the toxicity to the environment. Toxicologists address constantly the changing environmental conditions and are concerned with the safety of the environment.
