Significantly updated, revised, and expanded, this third edition of Organic Pollutants: An Ecotoxicological Perspective presents the basic principles of ecotoxicology along with the major organic pollutants. Two new chapters cover endocrine disruptors and neurotoxicity and its behavioral effects.
Organic Pollutants: An Ecotoxicological Perspective also provides additional information on biomarker approaches and offers an overview of new technologies, such as microarray assays, that are being developed to address complex pollution problems. Through a mechanistic approach, Organic Pollutants: An Ecotoxicological Perspective continues to provide essential knowledge of toxic mechanisms that produce adverse ecological effects, serving as valuable guidance for carrying out the risk assessment of environmental chemicals.
