Mechanistic bioaccumulation models are powerful tools in environmental risk assessment as they provide insight in varying accumulation patterns across species, contaminants, and conditions, and they are applicable beyond tested cases. In these models key parameters, as absorption and elimination rate constants, are predicted based on chemical specific properties and physiological characteristics. However, due to the complex environmental behavior of metals, the development of mechanistic… CONTINUE READING
