Summary "Understanding Risk to Wildlife from Exposures to Per- and Polyfluorinated Alkyl Substances (PFAS) provides the most recent summary of toxicity data relevant to mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians and provides values for use in risk assessment applications. Predicting the bioaccumulation of PFAS in terrestrial wildlife (including humans) has proven to be extremely complex. As a group, they act differently than traditional non-ionic organic molecules where they can breakdown and reform, while some are demonstrated to be extremely persistent. Where sufficient data are provided, the book establishes toxicity reference values (TRVs), which are derived to assist in characterizing environmental sources and making risk-based decisions"-- Provided by publisher.
