  • Deriving site‐specific clean‐up criteria to protect ecological receptors (plants and soil invertebrates) exposed to metal or metalloid soil contaminants via the direct contact exposure pathway

    Soil contaminant concentration limits for the protection of terrestrial plants and soil invertebrates are commonly based on thresholds derived using data from laboratory ecotoxicity tests. A comprehensive assessment has been made for the derivation of Ecological Soil Screening Levels (Eco‐SSL) in the United States of America (USA); however, these limits are conservative because of their focus ...
