About this book

This book establishes a framework for goals, methods, and data needs for different assessment applications and for integrating population-level risk assessment into risk management decisions. It provides a "tool box" of empirical and modeling methods, and provides a foundation for designing and conducting population-level ecological risk assessments consistent with North American, European, and Japanese risk management approaches. The book highlights key considerations needed to improve the scientific quality and interpretation of assessments. Detailed appendices include examples of population-level assessment approaches applicable to specific environmental management contexts, a modeling case study, and a supplemental reading list.

Practitioners of ecological risk assessment owe it to themselves to read this book. --Glenn Suter, SETAC Reviews Editor, in Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management, Vol. 4, No. 2
