Description

This book provides a complete coverage of all aspects of theoccurrence, toxicity and analysis of toxicants in the aqueousecosystem. The aqueous ecosystem includes natural waters such asrivers, coastal waters and open seawater. It also includessedimentary matter present in these waters, creatures (fish,crustacea) and plant life. Chapters dealing with toxicitymeasurement, control of pollution regulation and toxicity datasystematically discuss metals, organometallic compounds and organiccompounds. In addition, Chapters 4 and 5 deal with the effects ofthese types of toxicants in natural waters and water creature stissues, whilst Chapter 8 deals with the health of such creatures.Contents:
