The Toxicology of Fishes
by Richard T. Di Giulio

The Toxicology of Fishes discusses the biochemical and molecular aspects and focuses on aquatic toxicology in general.

The Toxicology of Fishes provides complete coverage of exposure, uptake, and distribution of chemical pollutants by fish and their responses within individuals, species, and communities.

  • Provides in-depth coverage that ranges from the molecular level to the community and population level
  • Covers the interaction of chemical contaminants with freshwater and marine fishes
  • Presents case studies that give insight into the effects of chemical classes perturbing aquatic systems
  • Explores the interplay of feedback between controlled laboratory experiments and field investigations
