About this book

This book is a comprehensive and well-documented text providing a collection of computational methods to the ecotoxicologists primarily interested in the study of the adverse effects of chemicals, their mechanisms of action and/or their environmental fate and behavior. Avoiding mathematical jargon, the book presents numerous case studies to enable the reader to understand the interest but also the limitations of linear and nonlinear models in ecotoxicology.

Contents

Preface.- Artificial neural network modeling of the environmental fate and ecotoxicity of chemicals.- (Q)SAR models for genotoxicity assessment.- Chemistry based non-animal predictive modeling for skin sensitization.- Interspecies correlations for predicting the acute toxicity of xenobiotics.- Use of multicriteria analysis for selecting ecotoxicity tests.- Physiologically-based toxicokinetic (PBTK) modeling in ecotoxicology.- Earthworms and their use in eco(toxico)logical modeling.- The potential for the use of agent-based models in ecotoxicology.- Ecotoxicological applications of dynamic energy budget theory.- Matrix population models as relevant modeling tools in ecotoxicology.- Bioaccumulation of polar and ionizable compounds in plants.- The evolution and future of environmental fugacity models.- The application of structurally dynamic models in ecology and ecotoxicology.- Index.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "This edited book focuses on the application of a wide range of models and modelling techniques on issues within environmental chemistry and (eco)toxicology. ! there are certainly some interesting and stimulating papers within this book. For me (as someone with an interest in the ecological aspect of ecotoxicology) papers such as those on the potential use of agent-based models in ecotoxicology and on the application of the dynamic energy budget theory represent stimulating contributions to the field."
