Principles of Ecotoxicology--Second Edition

C.H. Walker, S.P. Hopkin, R.M. Sibly, and D.B. Peakall (2001)

This second edition builds upon the foundations laid by the outstanding success of the first edition. The text progresses from the molecular basis of pollutant toxicity to consequent effects at higher levels of organization--cellular, whole-organism, population, community, and ecosystem. The first section describes the major classes of organic and inorganic pollutants, their properties, the manner of their release, their environmental fate, and their transport in air, water, and long food chains. There follows a discussion of the effects pollutants have upon individual organisms. The final section deals with effects at the levels of population, community, and ecosystem.
