The introduction of species sensitivity distribution (SSD) approaches to ecological risk assessment offers the potential for a more transparent scientific basis for the derivation of predicted no-effect concentrations. However, conventional SSD methodologies have relied on standard distributions (e.g., log logistic, log normal) that are not necessarily based on sound ecological or statistical grounds. More recently, bootstrap resampling techniques that do not rely on distributional assumptions… CONTINUE READING
