Biomonitoring of water quality is very much essential for assessing the overall health of water bodies and safe supply of drinking water. The chemical nature of toxicant is highly dynamic in environment with time and space whereas biological system can integrate all environmental variables over a.

While aquatic biomonitoring is the most common form of biomonitoring, any ecosystem can be studied in this manner. Biomonitoring typically takes different approaches: Bioassays, where test organisms are exposed to an environment to see if mutations or deaths occur.

Typical organisms used in bioassays are fish, water fleas, and frogs. Biomonitoring of change lies at the core of ecosystem conservation, management and restoration. As biomonitoring is an obligation today, biomonitoring programs are framed by government organizations (e.g. European Commission, Joint Nature Conservation Committee in the United Kingdom).

Biomonitoring of water quality is very much essential for assessing the overall health of water bodies and safe supply of drinking water. The chemical nature of toxicant is highly dynamic in environment with time and space whereas biological system can integrate all environmental variables over a large period of time in terms of effect that can be easily measured and universityofthephoenix.com by: Definition.

Biomonitoring involves the use of organisms to assess environmental contamination, such as of surrounding air or universityofthephoenix.com can be done qualitatively by observing and noting changes in organisms, or quantitatively by measuring accumulation of chemicals in organism tissues.
