Advances in Ecotoxicology
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Ecotoxicology is the study of the effects of toxic chemicals on biological organisms, especially at the population, community, ecosystem level. Ecotoxicology is a multidisciplinary field, which integrates toxicology and ecology. The ultimate goal of this approach is to be able to predict the effects of pollution so that the most efficient and effective action to prevent or remediate any detrimental effect can be identified. In those ecosystems that are already impacted by pollution ecotoxicological studies can inform as to the best course of action to restore ecosystem services and functions efficiently and effectively. Ecotoxicology differs from environmental toxicology in that it integrates the effects of stressors across all levels of biological organisation from the molecular to whole communities and ecosystems, whereas environmental toxicology focuses upon effects at the level of the individual and below.

In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about ecotoxicology published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on ecology, toxicology, environmental toxicology, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in ecotoxicology as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
