EEM4: Development of Tools for Probabilistic Uncertainty Analysis in Environmental Risk Assessment of Chemicals
The risk to wildlife or the environment posed by a given chemical depends on whether its environmental concentration is greater than set quality objectives (the risk quotient). Both environmental concentrations and quality objectives are calculated based on chance (probability), a […]
EMSG22: Endocrine Disruption in the Aquatic Environment; Laboratory Investigation of Endocrine-Active Chemicals
Laboratory studies are being conducted in which fish are exposed to defined concentrations of known chemicals. Natural steroids, synthetic steroids and xenoestrogens will be assessed. The choice of test chemicals will depend on field studies in the UK and Germany, […]
EMSG31: Aquatic Invertebrates Study – Aquatic Toxicity Project C
Evaluate the published information on the reproductive endocrinology of aquatic invertebrates with a view to evaluate their potential use in aquatic hazard identification of endocrine modulators.
