GERRIT SCHÜÜRMANN, PhD, is Head of the Department of Chemical Ecotoxicology at the UFZ Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig and Honorary Professor at the University of Leipzig, Germany. His research interests include the exposure, transformation, bioaccumulation and ecotoxicological profile of xenobiotics in aquatic and terrestrial environments, prediction of physicochemical properties and molecular reactivity of compounds, structure-activity relationships and modes of chemical toxicity, and methods for the hazard and risk assessment of chemicals.

BERND A. MARKERT, PhD, is Professor of Environmental High Technology and Director of the International Graduate School (IHI) in Zittau, Germany. His professional interests include the biochemistry of trace substances in the water/soil/plant system, instrumental analysis of chemical elements, eco- and human-toxicological aspects of hazardous substances, pollution control by use of bioindicators and technologies for waste management, environmental restoration, and remedial action on soils.
