The Way Forward
Ecotoxicology ("toxicology in an ecological perspective") is a discipline resulting from pollution events that harmed human and environmental health by the mid-twentieth century. It is the study of the effects of toxic chemicals on biological organisms, especially at the population, community, ecosystem, and biosphere levels. In ecosystems that are already affected by pollution, ecotoxicological studies can inform the choice of action to restore ecosystem services, structures, and functions efficiently and effectively.
Today, ecotoxicology is an important research area which interests many young environmentalists. The Nature’s Eye invites you to this amazing session which will help you understand more about ecotoxicology, it's need and difference from other fields, the future of research and advanced studies in it.
