Overview

What is the impact of environmental mutagens and genotoxins? Can vitellogenin induction in fish indicate estrogen exposure? What does EROD induction reveal?
Impact Assessment of Hazardous Aquatic Contaminants answers these questions and more. The book evaluates the harmful effects of complex toxicants on the subcellular and cellular levels of biota in aquatic environments. The eight chapters offer current information on contamination and remediation of marine life. This presentation is of particular value to ecotoxicologists, environmentalists, and industrial regulators.
Editor Salem Rao has worked in aquatic and environmental microbiology and toxicology for over 30 years. His work addresses key environmental issues of global concern by contributing strategies and solutions for aquatic life management.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Mostly Canadian contributors respond to the growing awareness that a better knowledge of the impact of toxins and genotoxins at the subcellular, cellular, and organism levels would enhance the understanding of long-term effects and contribute to better aquatic management strategies. The topics include neoplastic and inflammatory liver disease of white suckers as environmental quality indicators, ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) induction in fish as an indicator of exposure to environmental estrogens, an ecotoxicological assessment of Japanese industrial effluents using a battery of small-scale toxicity tests, and the bioremediation of freshwater sediments contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
