Module 2: Identification of ecological receptors, contaminants of concern, and exposure pathways, conceptual exposure model development, exposure estimation methods, identifying toxicity reference values, introduction to other effects measures, estimating and interpreting hazard quotient
Module 3: How to use food chain modelling to estimate daily contaminant exposures by mammals, birds and reptiles
