Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a two volume set aimed at examining persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemicals that undergo slow environmental degradation in air, water, and soil, bioaccumulate in fish and other organisms, and exhibit a high degree of toxicity. This volume examines the fate and behavior of these chemicals, and their food chain transfer and exposure. Chapters cover recent research results and reviews related to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), butyltin, toxaphene, dioxin, alpha-hexachlorocyclohexane and mercury.

Book News Annotation:

This collection of 21 papers from a March 1999 symposium presents research on the behavior of hydrophobic chemicals in the environment, and on human exposure to PCBs, dioxin, and mercury. Some of the topics are persistent organic pollutants along the Atlantic coast, plant uptake of LAS and DEHP from sludge amended soil, emissions of polychlorinated biphenyls from combustion sources, hair mercury analysis, dioxin body burdens in California populations, and biomagnification of PCB congeners in the Lake Michigan foodweb. Distributed by Oxford University Press.
