Ecotoxicological Testing of Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems: Emerging Techniques, Trends and Strategies focuses on state-of-the-art ecotoxicological techniques and methods that are used for aquatic ecosystem health assessment. The book evaluates the latest bioassay techniques used in the field and includes a detailed discussion of the integration of data, risk communication, and risk perception. It also analyzes how improvements in data processing and information technology have led to the assessment of spatial variability. Also covered are emerging fields of research such as biomarkers, genome expression, multi-species tests, and tiered approaches. This is a multi-authored reference, useful for researchers in environmental toxicology, ecosystem health, ecology, and marine and aquatic resource management.
