Glossary of Terms Used in Ecotoxicology (IUPAC Recommendations 2009)
Monica Nordberg, Douglas M. Templeton, Ole Andersen, and John Henderson Duffus
Pure and Applied Chemistry, 2009
Vol. 81, No. 5, pp. 829–970

This glossary’s objective is to provide clear definitions for those who contribute to studies relevant to ecotoxicology but are not themselves ecotoxicologists. This situation applies especially to chemists who need to understand the ecotoxicological literature without recourse to a multiplicity of dictionaries. The glossary includes terms related to chemical speciation in the environment, sampling, monitoring, and environmental analysis, as well as terms related to adverse ecological effects of chemicals, ecological biomarkers, and the environmental distribution of chemicals. The dictionary consists of 1 139 terms. In addition to chemists, the authors hope that pharmacologists, toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, risk assessors, regulators, medical practitioners, and regulatory authorities will find this glossary helpful. In particular, the glossary should facilitate the use of chemistry in relation to environmental risk assessment.
