Scientifica is a peerreviewed, Open Access journal covering a wide range of subjects in the life sciences and environmental sciences.


Heavy metals (HMs) have been regarded as a hazard to human and ecotope due to their toxicity, persistence, and biological accumulating for centuries. Risk to human health and ecosystem safety can be caused by heavy metal residues through multipathway owing to their transport and transformation among environmental multimedia such as ambient air, soil, and surface water. Unfortunately, after the long-time research, the present advances in human technology have not reduced that risk effectively. Actually, the increased industrialization and urbanization of the developing world, the enhanced demand for resources, and the advent of new technologies have increased the risk of exposure to these substances.

In recent decades, environmental risk assessment and management are established as valuable tool to support the national or regional quantitative regulatory system and administrative decision-making for HMs’ pollution. Historically, environmental risk assessments have tended to focus narrowly on single heavy metal with indicator of its total content, usually emphasizing a specific human health or eco-health endpoint and a particular exposure pathway for a hypothetical receptors or ecological species. But it is obvious that multireceptors in the real world are routinely exposed to HMs in environmental multimedia from multipathway. Furthermore, the exciting progress on studies about HM’s bioavailability and combined effects, spatial analysis technology, uncertainty control method, exposure science, and remediation techniques are of possibility to promote the current method of environmental risk assessment and the risk-based management. Thus, this special issue will encourage and highlight the new or improved approaches, models, and theories that either have been applied or are under development to moving the field forward in assessing and managing environmental risk posed by HMs from multipathway exposure in environmental multimedia.
