Overview

The Encyclopedia of Toxicology provides a comprehensive collection of concise and readable explanations of basic principles in toxicology and the potential hazards of chemicals. Written by highly qualified contributors and containing a broad selection of topics, the Encyclopedia is of value to both toxicologists and non-toxicologists, including physicians, attorneys, regulators, safety managers, and environmental engineers-anyone whose work involves the health and safety issues of common and uncommon substances. The Encyclopedia of Toxicology plays a critical role at the intermediate level by offering more detail than a dictionary while remaining accessible to the generalist in risk assessment, regulation, and consulting. The reference work includes entries related to research and clinical toxicology, risk assessment, ecotoxicology, epidemiology, radiation, noise, information resources, organizations, and education. With more than 750 entries, extensive cross-references, a detailed index, and numerous references to primary and secondary literature, the Encyclopedia will be an indispensable resource.

Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
...an excellent source for students doing research and professionals dealing with industrial safety or the clinical management of patients. ...a fine addition to health sciences and academic libraries.
Booknews
This three-volume encyclopedia covers basic, critical, and controversial elements in toxicology, i.e. those elements that are essential to an understanding of the subject's scientific underpinnings and societal ramifications. As such, it covers not only key concepts such as dose response, mechanism of action, testing procedures, endpoint responses, and target sites, but also individual chemicals and classes of chemicals. Although the reference has a strong chemical emphasis, it also looks at concepts such as radiation and noise, history, laws, regulation, education, organizations, and databases. The entries are alphabetically arranged and extensively cross-referenced. The index is in Volume III. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
