Consider transgenerational effects when assessing toxicity

In ecotoxicological research, we study how toxic chemicals entering the environment can affect plants, animals, and entire ecosystems. To understand how those contaminants harm organisms, we generally start with experiments conducted in a safe laboratory environment. In these laboratory experiments, different organisms are exposed to different concentrations of the environmental contaminant of interest.
