    The book Ecotoxicology focuses on effect of toxic substances on ecosystem and their components. Modern molecular biology technique like real‐time PCR and improved analytical methods; SPE‐HPLC/DAD, MEPS‐HPLC/DAD and X‐ray spectroscopy are. title = "Principles of ecotoxicology", abstract = "This chapter offers some background information on selected issues and toxicants of importance in ecotoxicology. Ecotoxicology can be defined as the science of predicting effects of potentially toxic agents on natural ecosystems and on nontarget by: 3.

    "This second edition of Principles of Ecotoxicology builds upon the foundations laid by the outstanding success of the first edition. The text progresses from the molecular basis of pollutant toxicity to consequent effects at higher levels of organisation - cellular, whole organism, population, community and ecosystem.".   The book defines ecotoxicology as the study of the harmful effects of chemicals upon ecosystems. It is an interdisciplinary subject which represents a synthesis of elements from the disciplines of chemistry, biochemistry, toxicology, physiology, population ecology and population :

Walker, R.M. Sibly, D.B. Peakall. The organic pollutants discussed in this book are examples of xenobiotics. A xenobiotic is de–ned here as a compound that is foreign to an organism-it does not play a role in the organism’s normal biochemistry. By this de–nition, a chemical that is normal to one organism may be Cited by: 4.
