Spatially explicit risk analysis: a new solution to contamination problems in the Metropolitan Delta

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

    Abstract

    In the current paper a new conceptual outline for the ecological risk assessment of contamination will be adressed. In the first place risk assessment has to be spatially explicit, taking in account the spatial structure of the landscape (landscape ecotoxicology). Secondly the concept of SSRA (spatially structured risk assessment) being introduced: it is aimed at minimising the contact between organisms and contaninants by spatially structuring the landscape so that organisms will not forage at contaminated sites
