The impact of toxicants on populations is mediated through effects on various life-history traits at the individual level. In order to adequately assess the potential impact of toxic stress on populations and to obtain insight into underlying physiological mechanisms, development of a theoretical framework is of great importance. Demographic theory provides an essential tool for reaching these objectives.
