Aligning environmental science with regulation, this book presents the first in-depth set of recommendations published in the open literature focused specifically on how genomics data could be used in regulatory ecotoxicology. The book develops a conceptual framework of how genomics data can most effectively impact current approaches for ecological risk assessments. It also identifies how biomarkers of exposure and effect from both lab and field monitoring studies can be used, including providing a basis for the extrapolation of chemical effects across species. It explores exactly how data generated from new genomics technologies might impact or benefit risk assessment.
