Summary
  • "This second edition of Principles of Ecotoxicology builds upon the foundations laid by the outstanding success of the first edition. The text progresses from the molecular basis of pollutant toxicity to consequent effects at higher levels of organisation - cellular, whole organism, population, community and ecosystem." "It is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers from a wide variety of backgroundsenvironmental chemists, toxicologists, zoologists, biologists and agriculturalists. Professionals working in these areas will also find it a valuable reference point."--Jacket
