Censored data are seldom taken into account in species sensitivity distribution (SSD) analysis. However, they are found in virtually every dataset and sometimes represent the better part of the data. Stringent recommendations on data quality often entail discarding a lot of these meaningful data, resulting in datasets of reduced size which lack(More)
The species sensitivity distribution (SSD) is a key tool to assess the ecotoxicological threat of contaminants to biodiversity. For a contaminant, it predicts which concentration is safe for a community of species. Widely used, this approach suffers from several drawbacks: (i) summarizing the sensitivity of each species by a single value entails a loss of(More)
Classical species sensitivity distribution (SSD) is used to assess the threat to ecological communities posed by a contaminant and derive a safe concentration. It suffers from several well-documented weaknesses regarding its ecological realism and statistical soundness. Criticism includes that SSD does not take time-dependence of the data into account, that(More)
