Description - Environmental Toxicity Testing by Clive Thompson
The rapid expansion of the world's population, combined with industrial progress, has made a significant impact on the world's ecosystems. Ecosystems related to the aquatic environment represent the primary concern, but the terrestrial environment is also a major challenge for the foreseeable future, in view of increasing demands on available land resources and the need for remediation and reclamation. This volume provides a working knowledge of monitoring issues for those who commission environmental toxicity tests or are required to use them. It discusses interpretation and application of the results, together with any caveats, and considers recent progress in the development of rapid and novel methods. Ecotoxicity is one of the hottest topics in contaminated land assessment. The volume is directed at industrial chemists, process engineers, analytical chemists, environmental consultants and ecologists - the "non-experts" who have a direct interest in ecotoxicity, rather than the ecotoxicologists.
