Abstract

To meet the todays needs for the protection of the environment from pollution through cumulative poisonings or biohazards ecotoxicology uses biotests, to determine effects of chemicals and sewage waters to ecosystems. ECOTOX is a biotest system that allows both the estimation of risks arising from certain substances or substance mixtures as well as the on-line monitoring of waste waters and aquatic ecosystems. Euglena gracilis, the employed organism for freshwater measurements, found to be highly sensitive to external factors, provides several physiological endpoints, well fitted for toxicity hazard assessment in water management, which can be characterized by the ECOTOX program.
