Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The compilation of the articles in this derivative emphasizes ecological components and fundamental paradigms of ecotoxicology. The alphabetical listing of toxic substances and chemicals in Part B and C serves as a quick reference for professionals. Additionally, the international focus of "Ecotoxicology" and the range of toxins it covers will make it an indispensable resource to scientists.

The password-protected companion website will contain estimation of ecotoxicological parameters (EEP) software developed by the author. EEPallows users to get ecotoxicological properties of chemicals in databases or they can estimate them (there are only a few percentages in the database). There are very specific estimation methods that only estimate, for instance the properties for halogenated aromatic compounds, or there are very general estimation methods. EEP covers the very general methods and is fast to use butgives in general estimation of higher uncertainty than the very specific methods.
Provides an overview of the theory and application of global ecology International focus and range of ecosystems makes Ecotoxicology an indispensable resource to scientists Based on the bestselling Encyclopedia of Ecology Full-color figures and tables support the text and aid in understanding
