The rapid expansion of the world's population, combined with industrial progress, has made a significant impact on the world's ecosystems. Ecosystems related to the aquatic environment represent the primary concern, but the terrestrial environment is also a major challenge for the foreseeable future, in view of increasing demands on available land resources and the need for remediation and reclamation.
This volume provides a working knowledge of monitoring issues for those who commission environmental toxicity tests or are required to use them. It discusses interpretation and application of the results, together with any caveats, and considers recent progress in the development of rapid and novel methods. Ecotoxicity is one of the hottest topics in contaminated land assessment.
The book Environmental Toxicity Testing is an important tool for anyone interested in studying and understanding the environment. "Easy to use and consult, the book is an important asset for teachers, students and employees that are involved in environmental practices." Environmental Engineering and Management Journal, 2005 "The articles are very well referenced and contain a depth of information that will be useful to people already working in the field." Chemistry and Industry 2005 "Directed equally at ecotoxicologists, industrial chemists, analytical chemists and environmental consultants, this book is written in a way that will prove helpful to both new and experienced practitioners." Management of Environmental Quality: An International Journal, 16:5 "Undergraduate students and future practitioners may find useful general information on assessment methods of the biological consequences of environmental pollution." Anal Bioanal Chem 2006
