About this book

Explains how ecological risk assessment relates to more familiar types of assessment. The scope has been broadened to include more discussion of the application of ecological risk assessment (ERA) to stressors other than chemical contaminants.

Reflecting on the evolution of ERA and changes in the field over the past 25 years, this book is, without question, the definitive reference on the current practice of ERA ... Throughout the book, Suter has succeeded in maintaining the emphasis squarely on providing clear, scientifically sound, and unbiased technical advice and instruction on ERA. --Richard Wenning, Editor-in-Chief, IEAM, in IEAM, 2008, Vol. 4, No. 1


Contents
