Ecotoxicology is the science that examines the fate and effects of toxicants in and on ecological systems. Although toxicology examines effects at molecular, cell, and organism levels, effects at higher levels are not always predictable based on findings at lower levels. Ecotoxicology integrates effects at multiple levels of biological organization.
