    Provides a variety of environmental toxicology issues that reflect the current status of ecotoxicology research and methodology.

    28 peer reviewed papers represent the three major components of ecotoxicology including:

    • measurements of toxicity of contaminants in aqueous, sediment, soils, air, and dietary media to terrestrial and aquatic plants and animals

    • monitoring, identification, and quantification of contaminants in the environment

    • assessment of ecological and human health risks of exposure.

    Paper authors represent a cross section of ecotoxicology's professional community, including scientists from academia, government, and the private sector.
