About this book

This up-to-date compilation from international experts covers the tolerance of living organisms to toxic contaminants. It examines the degree of generalization of tolerance at different levels of biological organization and discusses the defense mechanisms involved in the acquisition of tolerance to different classes of environmental contaminants, taking into account the limits at which such mechanisms are overwhelmed. The book also considers the ecological consequences and specific aspects of tolerance, especially those that impact the environment and society.
