Impact/Purpose:

To document research results.

Description:

Evaluation of bioaccumulation endpoints on a fugacity basis allows provides a framework to assess the biomagnification potential of a chemical and assess data deficiencies, i.e., uncertainties and lack of data. In addition, it is suggested that additional guidance is needed in order to produce and select the appropriate data to appropriately use this plotting tool.
