biomagnification is the process in which toxins are concentrated in an organism as larger animals continue to eat smaller animals. This process moves toxins up the food chain to larger organisms and is of particular concern with regards to concentrating dangerous toxins in larger species.


There are many biological processes in the world and many of these intersect with human activities along with their normal interactions. For instance, many migratory patterns of animals can change or become disrupted because of human activities of natural changes in the environment.
