Biomarkers for environmental pollution
Various pollutants enter the environment and cause severe damage to the ecosystem and the organisms present in it. Due to the diversity in the chemical nature of the pollutants and also the mode and level of toxicity, risk assessment is becoming a difficult task. Even minute level of toxicity might have an adverse effect on the environment when exposed continuously. These minute level of toxicity can be detected by Biomarkers which helps in reflecting adverse biological response towards xenobiotic toxins in the environment.
