Abstract

This is the fourth paper in a series that presents data in the Australasian ecotoxicology database. The paper presents all the published and unpublished ecotoxicology data for metals that had been generated in Australasia since the initial publication of metal ecotoxicology data in 2002. The literature search identified 58 articles that contained relevant ecotoxicology data. In total, 1939 new metal ecotoxicology data were added to the database thus increasing the amount of such data by approximately 80%. A total of 521, 484, 185 and 749 data were added for freshwater, marine/estuarine, sediment and terrestrial environmental compartments, respectively. The additional toxicity data will substantially increase the relevance of future environmental quality guidelines or hazard and risk assessments to Australasian ecosystems.
