Terrestrial Ecotoxicology

Terrestrial ecotoxicology is the study of how environmental pollutants affect land-dependent organisms and their environment. It requires three elements; a source, a receptor, and an exposure pathway. Pollutants enter the terrestrial environment through direct application, from diffuse sources, or by long-range transport. Terrestrial receptors include soil microbes, invertebrates, plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Terrestrial organisms can be exposed to pollutants through dermal, oral, inhalation, and food-chain exposures.
