Yu (environmental toxicology and environmental health, Western Washington U.) et al. provide upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students in environmental science, toxicology, and health and related fields, as well as professionals and researchers, with a text on environmental toxicology that focuses on the chemical and biological characteristics of major pollutants in the air, water, and soil and their relationship to the health of humans, animals, and plants. They discuss the sources, production, metabolism, and damage processes of toxicants, and the environmental, biological, and nutritional factors that influence toxicity, as well as natural defense systems, including mechanisms for detoxification on a cellular level. They look at major toxicants--air pollutants, environmental fluoride, volatile organic compounds, environmental metals and metalloids involved in soil and water pollution, and pesticides--and their relationship to occupational toxicology, endocrine disruption, environmental cancer, and DNA mutation, with an appendix on ecological risk assessment. This edition incorporates new and updated material and a new chapter on occupational toxicology contributed by new co-authors. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
