Book Description :

The Nature and Use of Ecotoxicological Evidence: Natural Science, Statistics, Psychology, and Sociology examines how toxicologists and environmental professionals come to understand and make decisions about possible harm from pollutants. Drawing on concepts and techniques from the natural, social and mathematical sciences, the book emphasizes how pollutant-related evidence is gathered, assessed, communicated and applied in decision-making. Each chapter begins with a real-world example before exploring fundamental cognitive, social, statistical or natural science concepts to explain the opening example. Methods from other disciplines for recognizing, reducing or removing the influence of impediments in wise decision-making are highlighted in each chapter. Misreading evidence by the scientific community, and miscommunication to regulators and the public, remain major impediments to wise action in pollution issues. Which evidence comes to dominate the dialogue among scientists, regulators and decision makers depends on social and scientific dynamics. Yet psychological and sociological factors that influence the movement of evidence through scientific communities to regulators receive cursory discussion by professionals unfamiliar with the sociology literature. Toxicologists, environmental scientists, psychologists and professionals and students across the sciences will find the book useful for understanding how evidence is generated, assessed and communicated in their own fields. Includes groundbreaking research synthesizing information from across the sciences to understand the decision-making process Provides real life examples and uses theoretical concepts to analyze them in clear, direct language Encourages critical thinking about complex problems

The objectives of the July 1994 workshop were to assess and characterize risk of organochlorines to the environment, to identify risk management options, and to develop strategies that address ecotoxicological problems. Topics discussed include sources, uses, and history of chlorine; distribution, transport, and transformation of organochlorine compounds; bioaccumulation and metabolism; modeling the fate and transport of compounds; effects on organisms; and risk management. Also included are appendices which provide case studies of trends in Canada, Sweden, and the United States. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Book Description :

The use of chemicals in any workplace in the developed world is governed by stringent health, safety and environmental legislation, and companies spend significant amounts of time and money assessing the risks associated with the handling and use of chemicals. In practice, those risk assessments are generally carried out by a range of competent people, be it the corporate safety manager, the R&D chemist or the manufacturing unit manager. This book will guide those personnel in the understanding, interpretation and application of toxicological and ecotoxicological information, supplied on a material safety data sheet, when planning the safe handling and use of chemicals. This volume is directed at corporate health & safety officers and safety managers; R&D chemists; process chemists and engineers, and manufacturing unit managers & supervisors in the pharmaceutical industry and the bulk, fine and specialty chemicals industries.

This publication is based primarily on a workshop held at the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology in Schmallenberg-Grafschaft, Federal Republic of Germany, in July 1985. The thirteen papers and eight case studies in this collection examine the ecotoxicological principles applicable to climatic conditions found in regions other than the temperate zones. Presents data from the tropical, arid, sub-polar, and high mountain regions on the fate of environmental chemicals and the response of ecosystems to chemical stress. They also point the way to future research and monitoring.

Demography in Ecotoxicology focuses on the interface between toxicology, life history and demographic theory. This comprehensive book examines the different ways of adequately assessing the potential impact of toxic stress on populations and discusses how to obtain an insight into the underlying physiological and genetic mechanisms. The theory is illustrated with empiricial observations on a number of species and organisational levels and the book incorporates: * case studies; * real data; * life history models; * methodologies; and, * recommendations for risk assessment Written by an international team of researchers, Demography in Ecotoxicology will be invaluable to ecotoxicologists, ecologists and wildlife conservationists in academia, industry and regulatory bodies wishing to gain a greater understanding into the prediction and effects of natural and man-made toxicants on populations.

Book Description :

This book considers the major organic and inorganic chemical pollutants which have ecotoxicological significance in the atmospheric, aquatic, terrestrial and human environments. Major ecochemical aspects of the pollutants are covered with respect to their fate, behaviour, transfer and pathways as functions of the important general and specific parameters of the various types of ecosystem. Aspects of ecotoxicology, including ecogenetics, are also considered. The book is the result of collaboration between leading experts in the field, each topic including a discussion of the methodology used in approaching problems, supported by reference to case studies or findings. Significant analytical aspects are also covered with a view to guiding the reader in obtaining relevant and reliable data, and discussion on regulatory topics and on industry and the environmental challenge is included.

Book Description :

Over the past decade ecotoxicology has emerged as a distinct subject of interdisciplinary character. Courses in ecotoxicology reflect this and are taught by specialists in chemistry and biochemistry through to population genetics and ecology. As the first textbook to incorporate all relevant aspects of chemistry, biochemistry, toxicology, physiology, population ecology and population genetics, the first edition of this book proved to be well received across several industries. Featuring fully revised text and new illustrations, Principles of Ecotoxicology identifies the major classes of organic and inorganic pollutants, their properties, release and environmental fate, and transport in air, water and along food chains, before considering the effects that they might have upon individual organisms and ultimately whole ecosystems. This timely second edition of Principles of Ecotoxicology incorporates data collected since the first edition on subjects of current research and media interest such as organochloride pesticides, endocrine disruptors, aquatic toxicity, industrial waste and ecotoxicity testing.

Book Description :

Many books have now been published in the broad field of environmental toxicology. However, to date, none of have presented the often fascinating stories of the wildlife science, and the steps along the way from discovery of problems caused by environmental pollutants to the regulatory and non-regulatory efforts to address the problems. This book provides case by case examinations of how toxic chemical effects on wildlife have brought about policy and regulatory decisions, and positive changes in environmental conditions. Wild animal stories, whether they are about the disappearance of charismatic top predators, or of grossly deformed embryos or frogs, provide powerful symbols that can and have captured the public's imagination and have resulted in increased awareness by decision makers. It is the intent of this book to present factual and balanced overviews and summaries of the science and the subsequent regulatory processes that followed to effect change (or not). We cover a variety of chemicals and topics beginning with an update of the classic California coastal DDT story of eggshell thinning and avian reproduction to more recent cases, such as the veterinarian pharmaceutical that has brought three species of Asian vultures to the brink of extinction. Researchers, regulators, educators, NGOs and the general public will find valuable insights into the processes and mechanisms involved both in environmental scientific investigation and in efforts to effect positive change.
