Hierarchical responses to organic contaminants in aquatic ecotoxicological bioassays: from microcystins to biodegradation.

The need to use ecological theories in ecotoxicology (putting the eco) is a continuous and old claim given the historical preference on the development and standardization of test systems, and on using traditional test results for risk assessment of chemical, leaving behind to strengthen the scienti...

Summary:The need to use ecological theories in ecotoxicology (putting the eco) is a continuous and old claim given the historical preference on the development and standardization of test systems, and on using traditional test results for risk assessment of chemical, leaving behind to strengthen the scientific basis of the field (Cairns, 1988; Clements and Kiffney, 1994; Van Straalen Lokke, 1997; Rohr et al., 2006)
