Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Suitable for undergraduate or graduate level courses, this introductory textbook covers the basic concepts and methods of the field, discusses the environmental toxicology of individual substances and groups of substances, and discusses risk assessment, rehabilitation, and regulatory toxicology. Case studies illustrate the issues. A glossary is included, as is a list of abbreviations and acronyms. Wright teaches at the University of Maryland. Welbourn teaches at Queen's University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"Well-done!" Northeastern Naturalist

"Many chapters end with short (1-2 page) case studies that help demonstrate the main points of the chapter and which will be good teaching tools. Some of these case studies are revisited in later chapters so that students can build on their knowledge.... The material is well organized.... There are actually quite a number of graphs, giving the students practice in interpreting data for themselves.... It covers such a wide range of materials in good detail that individual instructors could easily use only specific sections to fit the needs of their one-semester course." Ecology

"This book has much to offer as a comprehensive introductory, up-to-date text that will benefit both students and practitioners. The authors have presented a complex and difficult subject sympathetically, in its proper historical context and in a rigorous but accessible style." Gev Eduljee, Chemistry in Britain
