This affects 68% of endangered species. Pollution and overharvesting were identified as impacting 38% and 15%, respectively, of endangered species. No other contaminant has impacted animal survival to the extent of DDT, which remains one of the few examples of pollution actually extirpating animal species over a significant portion of DDT’s range. Once a species is reduced to a remnant of its former population size and distribution, its vulnerability to catastrophic pollution events increases, frequently exceeding or replacing the factors responsible for the initial decline.

The approach has generally been calculated as the LC50 ÷ GMCV, where GMCV = the geometric mean of the no-observed effect concentration (NOEC) and the lowest observed effect level (LOEC), termed the chronic value (CV). Before the ACR method was published, the AF concept was not used consistently. Arbitrary or “best judgment” values were often used as AFs to estimate chronic thresholds (CVs). Values in the range of 10 to 100 were most often used, but there was no consistent approach. The chronic value has also been alternatively referred to as the geometric mean maximum acceptable toxicant threshold (GM-MATC).
