The cycle of toxic substances in the environment and the potential effects of these substances on wildlife fall within the area of interest of environmental toxicology. In addition, it focuses not only on individual organisms, but they try to understand the survival of ecosystems, communities of different species of plants and animals in relation to their surroundings. Ecotoxicology studies how materials are distributed in water, soil and air, their possible conversion into other substances, how substances enter a community and leave, how they are transmitted through food, and what the consequences are for the survival of communities. The ultimate goal is making predictions about the risks posed by certain substances to the environment.
