About this book

Addresses the sources, environmental cycles, uptake, consequences and control of many of the more important chlorinated organic micropollutants|, including OPCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs and various chlorinated pesticides, all of which have given widespread cause for concern in relation to their environmental persistance and high toxicity, and their potential for adverse affects on both wildlife and humans.


Sources and fates of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins, dibenzofurans and biphenyls - a budget and source inventory approach; human exposure to dioxins; biological uptake and transfer of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans; atmospheric chemistry of PCBs, PCDDs and PSDFs; human toxicology of chlorinated micropollutants; ecotoxicology of chlorinated organic micropollutants; chlorinated pesticides; studies of chlorinated biphenyls in the Great Lakes; control of PCDD and PCDF emissions from waste combustors.
