In contrast to the general research attitude in the basic sciences, environmental sciences are often goal-driven and should provide the scientific basis for risk assessment procedures, cleanup, and precautionary measures and finally provide a decision support for policy and management. Hence, the prominent role of mechanistic studies in ecotoxicology is not only to understand the impact of pollutants on living organisms but also to deduce general principles for the categorization and assessment… CONTINUE READING
