Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment, 8th Volume (STP 1364) presents 29 peer-reviewed papers that provide you with the latest information on invertebrate and vertebrate endocrine disrupter screening assays and tests, in vitro endocrine disrupter testing, and an industrial perspective on endocrine screening testing. It focuses on the use of biomarker endpoints in toxicology and risk assessment, including biochemical, developmental, behavioral, and endocrine indicators.
Topics include: aquatic toxicology behavioral toxicology biochemical indicators developmental indicators endocrine indicators biodegradation and fate of chemicals quality assurance and quality control within laboratory and field studies risk assessment and communication and harmonization of standards development
This comprehensive text is an essential resource for environmental toxicologists, industry scientists dealing with product and chemical safety issues, and engineers and scientists dealing with chemcial treatment and disposal.
