  1. How should success be measured in ecological risk assessment ? The importance of predictive accuracy.

    Article - En anglais

    The process of human health risk assessment (HRA) is often judged by its ability to predict adverse outcomes of particular environmental contaminants or exposures for individual humans.

    Likewise, environmental scientists often examine the adverse outcomes of chemical or physical hazards on individual species.

    This ecoloxicological approach to ecological risk assessment (ERA) fails to encompass the potential range of adverse outcomes to populations, communities, and ecosystems.
