Abstract: ABSTRACT Toxicants can act as selective pressures in the environment, eliminating sensitive genotypes or species and favouring tolerant ones. Such toxicant-induced selection can be detected in natural communities using the Pollution-Induced Community Tolerance (PICT) concept. Mechanisms of tolerance to toxicants in communities can potentially be studied using metagenomic approaches in which the pool of genes or genomes of all community members are analysed. Such approaches have the potential to... more
