Talk Title: Bioaccumulation and Biotransformation in Birds: Data Gaps, Challenges, Opportunities, and Future Strategies

Abstract: Birds constitute a diverse and large group of species with many critical ecological roles. A substantial literature review of bioaccumulation and biotransformation of organic chemicals in birds was undertaken to support scoping and prioritization of future research. The objectives were to characterize available bioaccumulation, toxicokinetic, and biotransformation data, identify knowledge gaps, determine how existing data can be used, and explore the strategy and steps forward. This talk will discuss major data gaps and challenges identified through the review, and outline the research needs and directions that best support further characterization and understanding of the biological fate of organic chemicals in birds. The webinar will close with a series of forward-looking strategies for this big challenge.
