About this book

The contributions demonstrate the application of molecular methods and concepts to wildlife management, ecology, pollution control and remediation, and environmental health. Specific topics discussed include the use of molecular techniques in the population biology of wild animals and in the management of fisheries, bioremediation, cloning and characterisation of the genes responsible for degradation of PCBs and related environmental pollutants, molecular analysis of aromatic hydrocarbon degradation by soil bacteria, and molecular biological techniques in assessing environmental damage to natural habitats.


Introduction and Overview (S.J. Garte). The Use of Molecular Genetic Techniques to Address Conservation Questions (M.W. Bruford and R.K. Wayne). Use of DNA Analyses in the Management Natural Fish Populations (J.R. Waldman and I. Wirgin). Genetic Aspects of PCB Biodegradation (J.R. Yates and F.J. Mondello). Molecular Analysis of Aromatic Hydrocarbon Degradation (G.J. Zylstra). Assessment of Environmental Degradation by Molecular Analysis of a Sentinel Species: Atlantic Tomcod (I.I. Wirgin and S.J Garte). Molecular Epidemiology of Common Diseases (K. Hemminki). Molecular Epidemiologic Approaches in Environmental Carcinogenesis (R.M. Santella and F.P. Perera). Molecular Dosimetry of Ingested Carcinogens (P.T. Strickland and J.D. Groopman). Molecular Analysis of Mutation Induced In Vivo in Humans (J.P. O'Neill, R.J. Albertini, and J.A. Nicklas).
