General and Applied Toxicology: 3rd Edition

The Third Edition of the renowned reference source for scientists and students of general and applied toxicology is now published by Wiley (January 2010). General and Applied Toxicology: 3rd Edition has been fully revised and updated to provide a truly comprehensive overview of this field of research.

Toxicology is the study of poisons, whether chemical, biological or physical, and their toxic effects on humans, plants, animals and the environment. It has many applications, such as the detection of poisons in establishing cause of death, or the treatment of poisoning such as the clear-up of toxic waste, or counterbalancing the effect of AZT poisoning in AIDS patients. Latterly there has been greater public and media interest in toxicology because of the health, social, medicolegal and political implications of exposure to toxic substances. Toxicology texts are increasingly being consulted by general physicians and lawyers, law enforcement agencies, information resource facilities, and members of the general public. General and Applied Toxicology: 3rd Edition is the ideal reference source, covering every aspect of this fast-moving field.

General and Applied Toxicology: 3rd Edition comprises over 150 articles, all of which are either revised updates from the second edition or newly commissioned. It combines introductory, overview information for students with more advanced coverage of the latest discoveries in the field. This three-volume work consists of self-contained, peer-reviewed articles written by leading scientists in each field. It provides a comprehensive and in-depth review of the basic science of toxicology, its specializations, and the application of toxicological knowledge.

This is the ideal information source for science, medical, and technology libraries in academia, government, and industry, as well as the one-stop reference work for students as well as researchers in a broad range of fields.
