Fundamentals of Aquatic Toxicology: Effects, Environmental Fate and Risk Assessment by Edited by Gary M. Rand soon to be available at the outstanding BookLovers of Bath web site!

Published: Washington: Taylor & Francis, 1995, Paperback.

2nd edition.

From the cover: This text is divided into three parts. The first part describes basic toxicological concepts and methodologies used in aquatic toxicity testing, including the philosophies underlying testing strategies now required to meet and support regulatory standards.

The second discusses various factors that affect transport, transformation, ultimate distribution, and accumulation of chemicals in the aquatic environment, along with the use of modelling to predict fate.

The last section reviews types of effects or endpoints evaluated in field studies and the use of structure-activity relationships in aquatic toxicology to predict biological activity and physio-chemical properties of a chemical. This section also contains an extensive background of environmental legislation in the USA and within the European Community, and an introduction to risk assessment with case studies.

Near Fine. Remains in publishers original shrink wrapping, which is a little tatty and carries a tape remnant to the front although the book remains protected thereunder.

[XXI] 1125 pages. Index. Bibliography. 10″ x 7″.

Of course, if you don’t like this one, may I spellbind you with a further miscellany hither or maybe further, hand picked, books in my Biology catalogue?
