Domain 6 (Supra-organism level ecotoxicology), Subdomain 5 (Evaluate indirect effects on populations, meta-populations, communities, and ecosystems).

You have been criticized that your laboratory dose-response toxicity test (to determine the lethal dose   of copper to Daphnia [water flea], crustacean) is a test of individual response, not a population   response.  What laboratory work would address this?​

    1. Develop a food web model for your species​
    2. Rerun your test with many different species to develop a species sensitivity curve​
    3. Rerun your test with additional endpoints to develop a Leslie matrix​
    4. Identify policies that state your test does apply to populations
