The state of art of the biomarker approach in ecotoxicology is reviewed with particular reference to its use in the assessment of exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in wildlife. The following topics are discussed: the theoretical basis of the biomarker approach; the advantages of biomarker strategies in biomonitoring programs; application of biomarker strategies in an ecotoxicological context; the main biomarker techniques; interpretation of the results; and the development and validation of nondestructive biomarkers.

Abstract

The state of art of the biomarker approach in ecotoxicology is reviewed with particular reference to its use in the assessment of exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in wildlife. The following topics are discussed: the theoretical basis of the biomarker approach; the advantages of biomarker strategies in biomonitoring programs; application of biomarker strategies in an ecotoxicological context; the main biomarker techniques; interpretation of the results; and the development and validation of nondestructive biomarkers.
