RAMAS Ecosystem - Community Level Risk Assessment
Entry ID: RAMAS_ecosystem

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: RAMAS Ecotoxicology and RAMAS Ecosystem carry out ecological risk assessments
for systems of two kinds: structured single populations food chains.

Food chain/web models (RAMAS Ecosystem) Build chain or web using boxes and
arrows. model toxicant kinetics or set bioaccumulation factors; select
dose-response and predator-prey functions simulate dynamics and estimate risk
or adverse events.
