    Features the most up-to-date research on the diversity of biological measures of environmental stress exposure in every strata of living organisms.

    30 peer-reviewed papers from the world's leading experts in the field cover two key areas:

    Biomarkers --Comprehensive information on the various classes of biomarkers currently being researched and the types of vertebrates and invertebrates in which these techniques can be evaluated is presented in seventeen papers. Issues covered include: environmental estrogen impact; • chromosome translocation measurement; • mainstream and sidestream smoke exposure; • alterations in chicken embryo development; • and gross brain asymmetry evaluation.

    Aquatic and Sediment Toxicology, Behavior and Risk Assessment--A broad spectrum of information on the current issues in environmental toxicology and risk assessment is covered in 13 papers. Topics examined include: the sub lethal impact of toxicants as seen in behavior and functional effect; • quality assurance and toxicity identification in the context of laboratory toxicity testing; • and engineering challenges associated with volatile organic compounds (VOC).
