  Abstract: Current ecological risk assessment   (ERA) schemes focus mainly on bioaccumulation and toxicity of   pollutants in individual organisms. Ecological models are tools   mainly used to assess ecological risks of pollutants to   ecosystems, communities, and populations. Their main advantage is   the relatively direct integration of the species sensitivity to   organic pollutants, the fate and mechanism of action in the   environment of toxicants, and life-history features of the   individual organism of concern. To promote scientific consensus   on ERA schemes, this review is intended to provide a guideline on   short-term ERA involving dioxin chemicals and to identify key   findings for exposure assessment based on policies of different   agencies. It also presents possible adverse effects of dioxins on   ecosystems, toxicity equivalence methodology, environmental fate   and transport modeling, and development of stressor-response   profiles for dioxin-like chemicals. © 2015, Springer-Verlag   Berlin Heidelberg.
