  • Woah, this place is weird.
  • Wait is that a dog?!
  • Why?
  • I'm here to tell you about how metals and metalloids affect the environment!
  • Hi.
  • Metals and metalloids are everywhere, so we have to know how they affect the world around us.
  • Ecotoxicology (the study of the effects of toxic substances to the environment) plays a huge part in this.
  • Many animals actually cannot detect metal and metalloid contamination, leading to adapted ingestion, locomoter, and reproductiva abilities.
  • ERA (ecological risk assessment) of metals and metalloids actually has three questions to determine its risk.
  • And 4) if it has negative effects on populations.
  • 2) If the metals are metabolically active.
  • 1) If the metals accumulate in biota above background levels.
  • 3) If they are metabolically active, if it is likely to result in negative effects to individuals.
  • A good example of how metals and metalloids is Northwestern Zhuzhou.
  • This caused severe contamination within the area. The soil ended up contaminated and most of the food was not edible
  • A lead and zinc smelter caused concentrations of lead, zinc, copper, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, antimony, indium, bismuth, titanium, silver, and gallium.
