Overview

"This second edition of Principles of Ecotoxicology builds upon the foundations laid by the outstanding success of the first edition. The text progresses from the molecular basis of pollutant toxicity to consequent effects at higher levels of organisation - cellular, whole organism, population, community and ecosystem." "It is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers from a wide variety of backgroundsenvironmental chemists, toxicologists, zoologists, biologists and agriculturalists. Professionals working in these areas will also find it a valuable reference point."--BOOK JACKET.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An agricultural chemist and toxicologist, a chemist, a mathematician, and a zoologist (all animal and microbial sciences, U. of Reading, England) present a text they developed for their graduate course, which began in 1991. Their broad range of knowledge informs the interdisciplinary treatment and the integration of the different disciplines. They look at pollutants and their fate in ecosystems and the effects of pollutants on individual organisms and on populations and communities. They have revised the 1996 edition, partly by updating the material, but mostly by filling gaps that were pointed out in the coverage. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
