Summary
"Pollutants act either directly on individual organisms or indirectly by modifying the nonliving (abiotic) environment. In order to properly understand these processes, a basic grounding in ecosystem ecology is needed, but from a toxicological perspective." "This approach is the expressed philosophy of this text and this new edition fully revises and expands the coverage of this subject." "This book has been an invaluable primer for students in ecology, biochemistry, environmental studies, pollution science and industry. The third edition will extend its relevance into the next millennium."--BOOK JACKET
