Comparative Study of Regional-scale Ecological Risk Assessment used in Developed Countries
Yu-Jin Shin , Woo-Mi Lee , Youn-Joo An
  Ecological risk assessment (ERA) has been used to establish environmental quality standards or evaluate ecological risk in site-specific areas. The scope of ERA was expanded based on regions, and the concept of regional-scale ecological risk assessment was recently introduced in developed countries. In the present study, regional ERA approaches of relative risk model (RRM), contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems (CATS) model, and procedure for ecological tired assessment of risks (PETAR) in advanced countries were extensively investigated. Regional ERA was compared with traditional ERA process. Stressors, receptor and response in traditional ERA were replaced with sources of stressors, habitats, and ecological impacts, respectively in regional ERA. This study introduces the concept and assessment process of regional ERA, and provides a wide perspective how the relative ERA could be applied in Korean ecosystem.
Keywords: Ecological Risk Assessment(ERA); Regional-scale Ecological Risk Assessment; Relative Risk Model(RRM); CATS; PETAR
