The potential effect of anthropogenic pollutants like agrochemicals on the environment is of global concern. Increasing the use of particular compounds can result in contamination of water; food; and atmospheric systems; and in order to fight this pollution it is important to be able to accurately observe the short and long term effects.
Ecotoxicology and Genotoxicology: Non-traditional Aquatic Models; (PDF) describes the latest aquatic species models used as indicators of the harmful effects of environmental pollutants; including models that have not routinely been used. The ebook enables understanding of the impacts of pollutants in non-target species; and therefore allows analysis of the effects on ecosystems.
This ebook will be of interest to anyone interested in developing new biomarker species with high degrees of ecological relevance. It will serve as a helpful resource for regulatory and research toxicologists; especially those studying marine water; freshwater and sediment environments.
NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Ecotoxicology and Genotoxicology: Non-traditional Aquatic Models in PDF. No access codes are included.
