Abstract <p>The research described in this thesis concerns the effects of polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (PHAHs) on wildlife species, and the development of biomarkers for exposure and effect based on the mechanism of toxic action of PHAHs. In addition, attention is paid to differences in vulnerability between species with regard to exposure, kinetics and (eco)physiology, and the possible impact of current PHAH levels in The Netherlands on fish-eating wildlife species. The research was performed within the framework of the ecotoxicological research program of the department of Toxicology.
