Description
Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety is focused on the integrated mechanistic research on short- and long-term pathways and interactions of substances and chemical mixtures in the environmental compartments; on bioavailability; circulation and assimilation in the target organisms, their biological response and damage mechanisms (endocrine disruption, genotoxicity), as well as on a further fate in the food chain including humans. Novel technologies, techniques and methods such as the biomedical photonic technologies, biomarkers, biosensors and bioanalytical systems, QSARs and QSPRs, advanced high-performance computational methods, models and storage systems, and their applications in the obtaining and processing of interdisciplinary ecotoxicological information, are also addressed in the journal. We welcome the applied outcome of the complex ecotoxicological research such as developing the science-based Environmental Quality Criteria (EQC), standard toxicity tests, techniques and methods for ecotoxicological evaluation of the environment, as well as developing ecotoxicologically proven methods and technologies for prevention, interception and remediation of human-induced damage to ecosystems. The above scope of the Journal is aimed on providing science-based tools for sustainable managing the environment: risk assessment, risk characterization, risk prediction and risk management.Progress in the Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety is reflected in the review section presenting, summarizing and analyzing state-of-the-art within the scope and aims of the Journal.
Short solicited book reviews, advertisements and announcements of events (symposia, conferences, workshops) of general interest to researchers involved in ecotoxicology are also welcome.
