    The 10th volume in this series begins with a review of aquatic toxicology from its early dealing with acute problems, to its current statue as a mature field of science capable of dealing with long-term and sophisticated issues. The volume also features papers in two sections that address new aspects of aquatic toxicology: 1) bioengineering and aquatic environments and 2) application of paleoecological methodology.
