Description


Introduction to Environmental Toxicology is designed as a basic text, concisely introducing students to the fundamentals of this important subject. It covers the origin, characterization and environmental distribution of the major pollutants, and provides an explanation of the implications for human morbidity via the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary dysfunction and neurological conditions in relation to gaseous pollutants, particulates, persistent organic compounds and radioactive emissions. Considering the impacts on biodiversity, such as effects from acid rain, heavy metals and selected anthropogenic compounds, as well as the implications for water and food safety, this book:
  • Covers biogenic contaminants, gases and particulates, organic pollutants, petroleum, heavy metals, complex polymers and radiation;
  • Considers the impact of pollutants on human health, biodiversity, water and food safety
  • Includes questions, further reading and case studies to spark classroom discussion.
Covering all the major biological toxins and pollutants, this book forms a true introduction to the subject for undergraduates studying environmental toxicology and related subjects.
