Evaluation of potential use of biomarkers as long-term monitoring tools in assessing ecological quality in terrestrial and aquatic environments of the UK (ENRR593)

Biomarkers have potential application in assessing impacts on, or monitoring the condition of, living organisms, because they can provide evidence of exposure to chemicals (both individual compounds and mixtures of compounds), exposure to other stresses and/or an early warning of ecological impacts. The main objective of this review is to provide a comprehensive list of biomarkers currently in use, or that have the potential for use in biomonitoring of aquatic and terrestrial habitats within the UK.
