Overview

The new approach to ecosystem health is proactive. As a result, the scope of environmental studies is growing and the methods are evolving. Integrated Assessment of Ecosystem Health aggressively broadens the range of ecotoxicology to include its related fields.
The book begins with John Cairns, Jr.'s predictions and recommendations for the future ecotoxicology: "New goals must lead to new techniques.... the field of ecotoxicology is in the early stages of a major paradigm shift that is driven by three interrelated forces: 1) heightened interest in sustainable use of the planet, 2) protection of ecosystem , and 3) the shift from emphasis on avoiding deleterious effects to maintaining them in robust health."
Later chapters explore the integration of data, intrinsic remediation studies and the ever- increasing number of associated disciplines that are improving our environmental potential. Methodology, itself, is considered as an evolving tool, always in need examination and revision. Cairns, and his co-authors all advocate a constructive, offensive new form of ecoscience.
The consensus of scientists is clear: toxic threat and, especially, habitat destruction are the most important environmentl issues, today. The mandate from Integrated Assessment of Ecosystem Health is also decisive: expand the parameters of ecoscience. The future of life on earth depends upon our ability to grow and learn.

"...aggressively broadens the range of ecotoxicology to include its related fields...advocates a wider approach to ecosystem health, classifies 3 ritical issues...fate, effect & risk...details case studies."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Most of the 19 chapters contained here result from a September 1996 conference, titled "From Cumulative Impacts Toward Sustainable Solutions: Critical Methodologies for the Study of Ecosystem Health," which brought together scientists and regulators working in various aspects of ecosystem health and ecotoxicology in an effort to create a multidisciplinary approach. Topics addressed include subsurface contaminant fate determination through integrated studies of intrinsic remediation, distribution and transport of airborne pollutants to vulnerable California ecosystems, microbial proteins as biomarkers of ecosystem health, and uncovering mechanisms of interannual variability from short ecological time series.
