Before starting with the topic on toxicological studies and their role in environmental protection, let us go through some of the basic definitions. According to one definition, ecology is the scientific 
study of how abiotic forces and biota interact to shape the distribution and abundance of species. 
The study of how harmful chemicals and physical factors affect living things is known as toxicology
(Singh, 2022). A specific individual organism or community of organisms is considered to be in its 
environment if all the abiotic components such as air, soil, and water as well as all the biotic 
components such as plants and animals are present. Ecotoxicology is the study of how toxic 
substances behave and impact ecosystems (Alryahii and Jasim, 2022; Khangotra, 2022; Sardana et 
al., 2022). Instead of focusing on the impacts on a single creature, it tries to link how harmful 
substances affect populations and communities in a certain environment. There are differences in 
the results or effects on various species when the toxicant in issue is investigated on a variety of 
species. As a result, many ecotoxicological studies now focus solely on one species at a time to 
examine the effects of a toxicant.
