This timely reference brings together the world's leading scholars and researchers to integrate wildlife toxicology and population modeling and to advance the field of ecological risk assessment of agricultural-chemical use. The book examines the foundation of ecological modeling and its application in assessing the ecological risk of agricultural chemical use. State-of-the-art techniques and methods of ecological modeling have been compiled to provide insight into what must be done to minimize the impact of agricultural chemicals and other toxic substances on the environment. Wildlife Toxicology and Population Modeling is encyclopedic in coverage, presenting useful tools for environmental decision making and the latest in the theory and application of the science.
