About this book

Brings together the latest research on the exposure and effects of environmental contaminants in wild mammal populations.

...these 15 papers consider the differing effects of toxins on various species, the accuracy of predictions...and the significance of toxins relative to other threats. (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001) "excellent reference book" (The BritishToxicology Society Newsletter, December 2001) "I believe this to be a unique reference work in the field of ecotoxicology which should be invaluable to researchers in the field." (Ecotoxicology, Vol.11, No. 75, 2002) "...a superb summary of over 30 years of toxicity studies available on wild mammals..." (Journal of Mammalogoy, Vol. 83, No. 4, November 2002)
