With the goal of aiding risk assessors conducting site-specific ecological risk assessments at PFAS-contaminated sites, this dataset synthesizes information on the ecotoxicity of PFAS to amphibians produced by the Purdue University ecotoxicology research group over 6 years, in 9 amphibian species, and across 14 peer-reviewed publications. These studies consisted of spiked-PFAS chronic toxicity experiments with PFOS, PFOA, PFHxS, and 6:2 FTS that evaluated apical endpoints typical of ecological risk-based decision making (survival, growth, and development).
