Editorial Reviews

Booknews
One in a series of five volumes providing students with a treatment of ecotoxicology that is more focused than general textbooks provide, but still emphasizes paradigms and fundamental methods rather than specialized topics. Newman (College of William and Mary and Virginia Institute of Marine Science) explores the science of contaminants in the biosphere and toxicant effects of populations. Among his topics are the population context, the epidemiology of non-infectious diseases, population dynamics and demography, and translating individual effects to population effects using energy allocation theory and phenotypic plasticity.
