Overview

"Organic Pollutants: An Ecotoxicological Perspective provides a detailed analysis of the environmental fate of pesticides and other organic pollutants. Intended as a companion volume to Principles of Ecotoxicology, it focuses on the 'bottom-up' approach, describing the properties of organic pollutants, their mechanisms of toxicity, and how these factors are related to their effects upon free-living organisms - at levels ranging from individual and population through to community and ecosystem." "The book breaks new ground in offering a concise, mechanistic view of these compounds at a level suitable for senior undergraduates and postgraduates. Professionals working within the fields of environmental toxicology and environmental science will also find this a valuable reference."--BOOK JACKET.
