The ecotoxicological risk associated to the presence of a pollutant in water is considered significant, thus requiring routine monitoring, if the concentration of the compound released into the environment exceeds the ecological safety threshold, referred to as the predicted no-effect concentration (PNEC) (Wright-Walters et al., 2011).
To our knowledge, up today, there are few protein related ecotoxicological studies in Tampamachoco Lagoon.
However, more and more attention has been paid to the toxicological and ecotoxicological properties of these antibacterial agents (Singletary, 2011).
Previous studies have used field-caged Corbicula to detect ecotoxicological impairment of streams.
Non-airborne debris was collected on a stainless-steel tray placed on the test bench and its ecotoxicological impact on soil plants, freshwater crustaceans, and microalgae was evaluated.
Besides being extremely effective, this leads to an improved ecotoxicological profile
(2017) provide an updated overview of ecotoxicological and pollution monitoring studies of the main freshwater and marine biomonitors, i.e., the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas)) and blue mussel (Mytilus edulis L.), respectively.
Besides being extremely effective, this leads to an improved ecotoxicological profile," said Nicolas Gallacier, global marketing director in the Material Protection Products business unit (MPP).
The selection of suitable biomarkers for use in ecotoxicological studies depends on several factors, including the type of pollutant to be evaluated, the reference species, or even technical and budgetary factors (Rendon-Von Osten, 2005).
In ecotoxicological research, Labeo rohita is used as a suitable model for enzyme bioassays (Chavan and Muley, 2014).
A number of computational tools and databases are now available from US EPA and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), including quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) models for the generation of physical-chemical and environmental fate data, and quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models for ecotoxicological and human toxicological data.
