Praise for Previous Editions
Keeping the focus on principles over practice is what has made each incarnation of this book a bestseller. The third edition follows this central theme while bringing the text up to date and strengthening coverage in areas that have come to the forefront of the field. …With updates to every chapter, the text provides essential information in an easy to use format.
International Pest Control, Vol. 48 (2), March/April
The book is quite extensive in content and length….the authors continue to assist us in understanding the integration of this new knowledge by focusing on the 'principles' of the science.
Lee R. Shugart in Ecotoxicology, Vol. 16 (483), 2007
…its aim is to provide a wide-ranging, concise and readable introduction to ecotoxicology that will encourages student to want to learn more about the field…continues to succeed.
David Spurgeon in The British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Winter 2006
The coauthorship is advantageous in that it ensures that all topics are addressed by an expert, but the style is consistent and the content is integrated in a way that texts assembled by editors cannot achieve.
Glenn Suter in SETAC Globe, July-August 2001
To say that ecotoxicology is a multidisciplinary subject is an understatement. This text attempts a comprehensive survey of all of these aspects. It succeeds admirably.
Dr. J.W. Daniel in Chemistry & Industry, March 5, 2001
The authors used their outstanding interdisciplinary experience to describe the progression from chemical analysis of environmental pollutants to their effects at the levels of the individual, population, community and, ultimately, ecosystem. Using appropriate examples and relevant case studies, they have made ecotoxicology more accessible to any person who is concerned with environmental changes induced by pollution.
Dr. Laurent Lagadic in Ecotoxicology, Vol. 10 (6), 2001
This is, by any standards, an outstanding book, written by a chemist, a mathematician and a zoologist, who have achieved their aim in producing a truly interdisciplinary approach across the full spectrum of topics, from molecules to ecosystems….This book will certainly succeed in serving its primary purposeproviding a textbook for students, which covers the principles of ecotoxicology with a broad approach, cutting across traditional subject boundaries.
