Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines the effects of the release of chemicals into the environment from an ecosystem perspective, rather than simply in terms of the effects on individuals or populations. The contributors provide analyses in four major areas: issues and approaches, responses of ecosystems to chemical stress, examples of methods and models of analysis, and decision making and public policy issues. Marine, aquatic, and terrestrial systems are treated. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
