The EnviroTox database contains 80,912 aquatic toxicity effects records representing 1,641 species and 4,267 unique chemical identifiers and was specifically developed to provide a curated dataset to explore the concept of the ecological threshold of toxicological concern (ecoTTC). These data are associated with physical chemistry data and curated taxonomic information, including a process that assigns acute and chronic effects, and that identifies PNECs based on the available data. Several mode of action schemes are also included to facilitate development of a best approach for grouping compounds. This database has been made freely available via a web-based query system that integrates the various tools. This interface allows users to explore and upload data, derive threshold values based on specific criteria, and explore the use and application of ecoTTCs.

This presentation will provide an overview of the EnviroTox database and tools, with a live demonstration on how this valuable resource can be used.
