  • Environmental toxicology is the study of the impacts of pollutants upon the structure and function of ecological systems. For the purposes of this text, the emphasis will be upon ecological structures, from the molecular to the individual organism to the community and the ecosystem. The broad scope of environmental toxicology requires a multidisciplinary approach of a variety of specialists.

  • How are pollutants transformed after their release into the environment? How are organisms exposed, and how do physiological alterations impact population dynamics and community structure? What direct or indirect impacts occur? As early as the 50s and 60s people living near industrial plants began to recognize undesirable changes in their environment - and to ask these very questions. The discipline of environmental toxicology addresses these questions.

  • The first edition of Toxicological Chemistry (1989) was written to bridge the gap between toxicology and chemistry. It defined toxicological chemistry as the science that deals with the chemical nature and reactions of toxic substances, their origins and uses, and the chemical aspects of their exposure, transformation, and elimination by biological systems. It emphasized the chemical formulas, structures, and reactions of toxic substances. The second edition of Toxicological Chemistry (1992) was significantly enlarged and increased in scope compared to the first edition.

  • Significant changes in the environmental field have required a re-evaluation of the environmental protection programs in place around the world. Although reductions in pollution levels have been realized in certain areas, necessary expectations for environmental protection have not been met in spite of extensive regulatory programs and cost expenditures. This book examines new approaches to environmental protection, including the emerging field of international environmental law and environmental management systems...

  • Chlorinated paraffins are one of the last classes of chlorinated compounds that are still being produced worldwide and used in high quantities in many applications. They are particularly used in cutting oils in the metal industry, but also as lubricants, plasticizers, flame retardants and as additives in adhesives, rubber, paints and sealants. This volume covers the state-of-the-art of methods for the synthesis and analysis of chlorinated paraffins. Experts in the field provide an overview of their worldwide occurrence and utilization and describe their toxicological properties.

  • My interest in environmental pollution control microbiology began at MIT in 1948 when I realized that very little was known about this vital area of sanitary engineering technology. I became a serious student of environmental pollution control microbiology in 1950 when I began research on the microbiology and the biochemistry of floe-forming bacteria in activated sludge. I must admit that environmental pollution control microbiology has been my area of technical specialization since 1950. It has been a most interesting experience that I have never regretted.

  • The contents of this book are based loosely on presentations at a special symposium, “Application of Interface Science to Environmental Pollution Control,” held as part of the ACS National Meeting in Chicago, August 26–30, 2001. This symposium offered an opportunity for researchers from a range of disciplines to discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. The development of an archival book based on this meeting is a timely contribution to a burgeoning area of research that is now attracting the attention of a diverse research community.

  • The public demand for the protection of human and environmental health has led to the establishment of toxicology as the science of the action of chemicals on biological systems. Toxicological research is focused presently very much on the elucidation of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of toxicity and the application of this knowledge in safety evaluation and risk assessment.

  • When one is confronted with a new problem that involves the collection and analysis of data, two crucial questions are: How will using statistics help solve this problem? And, Which techniques should be used? This book is intended to help environmental engineers answer these questions in order to better understand and design systems for environmental protection. The book is not about the environmental systems, except incidentally. It is about how to extract information from data and how informative data are generated in the first place.

  • The occupational and environmental safety and health professions have been on merging paths for several years now. Corporate "down-sizing" or "right-sizing" has resulted in a more streamlined approach to these once very diverse and quite separate disciplines. Although they both may now be practiced in tandem, often by the same individuals, each has evolved and developed as a separate area of study. As such, there are literally thousands of words, terms, and phrases that have specific meanings within their respective disciplines that may not always be clear and simple....
