Language: English . Brand New Book. This landmark book, which contains contributions from the worlda s foremost mammalian ecotoxicologists, is a truly impressive summary of research undertaken in this field in recent years. It is also the first book to draw such information together in a seamless and unified approach. In examining the exposure and effects of environmental contaminants in wild mammal populations, this book addresses four core questions: aeo What exactly do we know about environmental contaminants in wild mammals? aeo What are the commonalities and differences between mammal orders/species in the effects that contaminants have? aeo How and to what degree of accuracy can we predict the adverse effects of environmental contaminants on mammalian wildlife? aeo How significant are contaminant insults compared with other density--independent and --dependent factors such as habitat loss, climatic factors and disease? The key underlying scientific principles and issues raised by the team of international authors will have significance throughout the world, making this an invaluable book not only for all those studying the effects of environmental pollutants on mammals, but also on regulatory agencies, and those carrying out environmental impact assessment.

Synopsis :

This landmark book, which contains contributions from the world?s foremost mammalian ecotoxicologists, is a truly impressive summary of research undertaken in this field in recent years. It is also the first book to draw such information together in a seamless and unified approach.

In examining the exposure and effects of environmental contaminants in wild mammal populations, this book addresses four core questions:
? What exactly do we know about environmental contaminants in wild mammals?
? What are the commonalities and differences between mammal orders/species in the effects that contaminants have?
? How and to what degree of accuracy can we predict the adverse effects of environmental contaminants on mammalian wildlife?
? How significant are contaminant insults compared with other density?independent and ?dependent factors such as habitat loss, climatic factors and disease?
The key underlying scientific principles and issues raised by the team of international authors will have significance throughout the world, making this an invaluable book not only for all those studying the effects of environmental pollutants on mammals, but also on regulatory agencies, and those carrying out environmental impact assessment.

Critique:

"...these 15 papers consider the differing effects of toxins on various species, the accuracy of predictions...and the significance of toxins relative to other threats." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 4, December 2001)

"excellent reference book" (The BritishToxicology Society Newsletter, December 2001)

"I believe this to be a unique reference work in the field of ecotoxicology which should be invaluable to researchers in the field." (Ecotoxicology, Vol.11, No. 75, 2002)

"...a superb summary of over 30 years of toxicity studies available on wild mammals...unparalleled in its breadth and depth and should become a desktop reference for anybody in academics or industry who is involved with mammalian ecotoxicology." (Journal of Mammalogoy, Vol. 83, No. 4, November 2002)
