what is biomagnification?

Asked by  | 17th Aug, 2008, 12:37: PM

Expert Answer:

biomagnification is the increase in concentration of the persistant toxicant at successive trophic levels. It happens because a toxic substance accumulated by an organism cannot be metabolised or excreted and is thus passed onto the next higher trophic level.
