Endocrine disruptors are compounds that persist in nature, they can be anthropogenic or xenobiotic. They can have an agonistic or antagonistic effect on the endocrine system of vertebrates and invertebrates by altering the structure or function of the endocrine system. With the disruption of hormonal homeostasis they can have a surprising imapct on individual animals, their populations in a habitat or even their enitre species. Effects of endocrine disruptors on invertebrates are not as well researched as on other vertebrates, with most research focusing on the development of eco-friendly pesticides. Vertebrates can get exposed to endocrine disruptors in any aspect of their life and their changes due to that exposure are harder to detect. Those changes get passed onto future generations without detection, which can endanger entire populations. Research that focuses on finding and diagnosing the effects of endocrine disruptors is the best way of dealing with the issue.
