About this Research Topic
This Research Topic supports research using novel ecotoxicological approaches to access developmental toxicity in different fish species. Articles addressing effects of exposure to relevant concentrations of pollutants at multi-levels of organization are strongly encouraged.
Potential areas of interest may include, but are not limited to:
• Behavioral impairment following early life exposure to environmental contaminants
• Linking epigenetic changes induced by the early-life exposure to pollutants and behavioral impairment in adult stage
• Investigate which physiological mechanisms, such as metabolic, neurological and hormonal are altered through early life exposure to pollutants
• Integrate behavioral effects of environmental toxicants with physiological processes at multi-levels of organization
Authors are welcome to submit original research papers, reviews, and short communications.
Keywords: fish, relevant concentrations, multi-level approach, embryo, aquatic physiology, hazardous materials, developmental toxicity, relevant concentration
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
