Annotation -
Toxicology of environment, ecotoxicology, is purely multidisciplinary subject dealing with topics intersection area of
environmental chemistry, toxicology, environmental protection and ecology. It develops further applications of their
methodologies on the entire environment. The main topics of ecotoxicology are the study of impacts, mechanism and
consequences of anthropogenic xenobiotics effects on environment, including human being. The respective
ecotoxicological output is information applicable for prediction of environmental xenobiotics behavior, minimization of
negative impacts of xenobiotics environmental incidence, for protection of ecosystem and for prevention and evaluation of
hazards resulting from the usage of chemicals. The obtained knowledge is applied within the safety and legislative

Note: at the time when epidemiological measures apply, the lecture can also take place in an interactive way in the online mode, eg Google Meets, Windows Teams, etc.
