Summary "Completely revised and updated, this new edition of the most comprehensive and authoritative work in the field contains nearly 50 percent new or revised material including 16 new chapters. With contributions from over 75 international experts, the Handbook of Ecotoxicology, Second Edition describes methods for quantifying and measuring ecotoxicological effects in the field and in the laboratory, major contaminant sources and effects, and methods for estimating and predicting exposure and effects as the basis for risk assessment. Seven case histories and ecosystem surveys illustrate the impact of environmental contaminants on diverse ecosystems." "This authoritative work remains the definitive reference for students, researchers, consultants, and other professionals in the environmental sciences, toxicology, chemistry, biology, and ecology from academia, industry, and government."--BOOK JACKET
