Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental risk assessment has emerged as a powerful, robust science-based framework in which to better understand the risks posed by environmental stressors.  And, through improved understanding of risk, we can improve environmental and public health decisions.   The two main categories of environmental risk assessment, ecological and human-health risk assessment, have seen exciting changes over the past few years with advances in areas such as exposure science, biomonitoring, invasive species, biotechnology, and nanotechnology.  The purpose of this special edition is to highlight the myriad ways in which risk assessment as a research discipline can be used to better understand contemporary environmental issues.
