About this book

Important biological effects include direct toxicity, embryogenetic effects, and bioaccumulation in fish, oysters and bivalves.

'...thanks to this multidisciplinary approach, the environmental problem of organotin compounds could be solved.' The Journal of the European Water Pollution Control Association '...well worth the wait...this book is not only a comprehensive reference but also a valuable practical guide...very well edited...highly consistent, logically organized and very readable.' Marine Environmental Research '...the general organization of this book is good and individual chapters are both stimulating and readable.' Applied Organometallic Chemistry
