what is biomagnification?

Asked by 17th August 2008, 12:37 PM
Answered by 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.
