Environmental Toxicity Testing provides a working knowledge of monitoring issues for those who commission environmental toxicity tests or are required to use them.

Environmental Toxicity Testing discusses interpretation and application of the results, together with any caveats, and considers recent progress in the development of rapid and novel methods.

Environmental Toxicity Testing is directed at industrial chemists, process engineers, analytical chemists, environmental consultants and ecologists.
