Summary Although the fields of toxicology and human health assessment address similar problems, the experts from these fields do not meet very frequently. Originating from a meeting of scientist in both fields, this book clearly links ecotoxicology and classic human toxicology. It incorporates extensive reviews of exposure to toxicants, toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics, toxicology of mixtures, and risk assessment. This unusual combination of coverage sets it apart from other ecotoxicological and risk assessment resources that do not discuss these topics in an integrated manner
