About this book

This book discusses the biological, physical, and chemical properties of mercury and its compounds. It documents the significance of mercury concentrations in abiotic materials, plants, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, elasmobranches, fishes, birds, as well as humans and other mammals. It examines variables that modify toxicity and explores lethal and sublethal effects of inorganic and organic mercury compounds. Also included are case sudies and lists of proposed mercury criteria for the protection of resources and health.
