Erratum to: Bioaccumulation in aquatic systems: methodological approaches, monitoring and assessment

Erratum

The bioconcentration factor (BCF) is defined as the ratio between the chemical’s concentration in organism (corganism) to the respective concentration in water (caq). The following corrected formula substitutes for formula (1) as printed on page 2 of the article by Schäfer et al. [1].

$$ \mathrm{B}\mathrm{C}\mathrm{F}=\kern0.5em \frac{{}^Co rganism}{{}^Caq} $$
