About this book

This book presents a comprehensive gathering of the techniques for measuring and assessing commonly found toxins in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Sampling, testing and analysis methods are offered.| Both lab scientists and field investigators alike will help in testing for everything from assessing DNA damage to bioaccumulation of common toxins, to assays of fish embryos and fish tissues.


PCNA analysis; partial hepatectomy of fish; DNA unwinding assay; 32P post-labelling of fish tissues; UV radiation assay; chemical analysis of water/sediments; autoradiography; bromodexyuridine labelling; in situ assays with fish embryos; microtox; analysis for retroviruses; metallothioneins; micro-isolation techniques of protein, RNA and DNA from fish tissues; free radicals; frog embryo teratogenesis assays (FETAX); fathead minnow assays; culture of small fish and invertebrates; analysis of DNA damage; analysis of DNA adducts; p-450; assay of phase II conjugating enzymes; analysis of metals from fish/invertebrate tissues; mesocosms; cell lines for measuring chemical toxicity in aquatic ecosystems; measurement of heat shock/stress proteins; freshwater toxicity tests; assay with sea-surface micro-layer.
