Summary

Since the publication of the first edition almost ten years ago, Introduction to Environmental Toxicology has found a secure place among the major texts and references in the field. The book moves seamlessly from mode of action of contaminants at the molecular level all the way up to impacts at the population levels. While retaining the strengths of previous editions, the third edition includes a new chapter on Fluoride, an update on endocrine disruption, a discussion of the use of models to reconstruct concentration-response curves, expansion of the metals chapter, and new developments in ecological risk assessment for management decisions at site to regional scales.
