About this book

A thorough understanding of the principles of environmental toxicology requires a sound foundation of general science: chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, and confidence with basic maths. Establishing this foundation is essential if students are to grasp later concepts. Environmental Toxicology - a Primer, provides that foundation - reviewing basic chemistry and explaining principles and concepts such as dose-response relationships, biotransformation, carcinogenesis and fate and transport.


Introduction to Environmental Toxicology. Absorption, Distribution, and Excretion. Biotransformation. Carcinogenesis. Toxic Effects. Environmental Media. Pesticides. Metals. Organic Chemicals. Fate and Transport. Risk Assessment.
