About this book

The reptile class of organisms form a major part of nearly all ecosystems, playing a pivotal role in the health of our environment. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge in reptilian target-organ toxicology. This well-illustrated text addresses the issues of contaminants that affect terrestrial, freshwater and marine species, often drawing illuminating comparisons with non-reptilian species. It covers all major contaminant classes, emphasizing those of the greatest current concern. This unique, target-organ based approach makes this book a valuable tool for students and researchers in environmental toxicology, wildlife toxicology, and reptilian biology.
