About this book

The pollution of the earth's freshwater habitats is a topic of major concern. This timely synthesis considers the effects of pollutants on aquatic animals via a series of research and review articles which present experimental evidence of sublethal and lethal effects of a range of toxicants at the physiological, cellular and subcellular levels.

Topics covered include routes of uptake of toxicants; the effects of acute and chronic exposure to toxic metal ions, particularly zinc, copper and aluminium, with emphasis on the mechanisms of toxicity and chronic exposure to sublethal levels; the impact on fish biology of two chemicals of current concern, nitrites and oestrogenic substances; and studies of the mechanisms of toxicity at the cellular and subcellular level, including damage of DNA, using cultured fish cells. First published in 1996.
