How This Key Event Works

?


Increased mortality refers to an increase in the number of individuals dying in an experimental replicate group or in a population over a specific period of time.


How It Is Measured or Detected

?


Mortality is typically measured by observation. Lack of any heart beat, gill movement, and body movement are typical signs of death used in the evaluation of mortality of animals.


Evidence Supporting Taxonomic Applicability

?


All living things are susceptible to mortality.


Evidence for Perturbation by Stressor



Regulatory Examples Using This Adverse Outcome

?


Increased mortality is one of the most common regulatory assessment endpoints, along with reduced growth and reduced reproduction.
