Publication highlight - The role of natural science collections in the biomonitoring of environmental contaminants in apex predators in support of the EU’s zero pollution ambition

Natural science collections, in coordinating a steady, long-term, pan-European supply of apex predator (and prey) samples, and working in collaboration with field organisations, analytical laboratories and regulators through arrangements, such as the European Raptor Biomonitoring Facility, are poised to play a critical role in supporting PARC objectives—in particular relating to environmental monitoring and the development of an early warning system—and thereby contribute to delivery of the EU Chemical Strategy and the EU’s zero-pollution ambition for a non-toxic environment.
