Price: $129.00

Presents the scientific basis to toxicology as it applies to the workplace and the environment. The third edition is compact and practical with information structured for easy use by health professionals in both industry and government. The book takes an applied, as opposed to theoretical, scientific approach. Emphasis is placed on the information pertinent to the industrial environment.

  • Covers the diverse chemical hazards encountered in the modern work and natural environment, and provides a practical understanding of these hazards
  • New topics include Toxicokinetics, Omics Technologies, Developmental Toxicity, Computational Toxicology, Nanotoxicology, and Determination of Causation in Toxicology
  • Provides clear explanations and practical understanding of the fundamentals necessary for an understanding of the effects of chemical hazards on human health and ecosystems
  • Includes case histories and examples from industry which demonstrate the application of toxicological principles
  • Supplemented with numerous illustrations to clarify and summarize key points, annotated bibliographies, and a comprehensive glossary of toxicological terms
