About this book

What is the impact of environmental mutagens and genotoxins? Can vitellogenin induction in fish indicate estrogen exposure? What does EROD induction reveal? "Impact Assessment of Hazardous Aquatic Contaminants" answers these questions and more. The book evaluates the harmful effects of complex toxicants on the subcellular and cellular levels of biota in aquatic environments. The eight chapters offer current information on contamination and remediation of marine life. This presentation is of particular value to ecotoxicologists, environmentalists, and industrial regulators. Editor Salem Rao has worked in aquatic and environmental microbiology and toxicology for over 30 years. His work addresses key environmental issues of global concern by contributing strategies and solutions for aquatic life management.
