Techniques in Aquatic Toxicology, Volume 2 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume is the second in the series Techniques in Aquatic Toxicology, which is intended to reduce to workable protocols techniques that have been established as beneficial in the field. This volume mirrors the first and includes a blend of established techniques, as well as recently developed novel approaches. It includes updates of approximately five techniques from the first volume, together with about 30 new techniques. Each chapter covers a particular method or procedure, including a brief introduction, a materials section, a procedures section, results, and discussion. The chapters are designed to allow flexibility in modifying or adapting a technique for particular needs.

Book News Annotation:

Ostrander (Environmental Institute, Oklahoma State University) presents both established and new techniques for the assessment of aquatic ecosystems. Coverage encompasses assessing toxicity in whole organisms, determination of cellular and subcellular toxicity, contaminant identification and impacts on ecosystems, and general techniques for any researcher studying aquatic ecosystems. Each chapter of the book covers a specific procedure in detail. After a brief introduction to teach each method, there is information on materials needed, and a description that allows anyone with a basic knowledge of the field to easily reproduce the procedure. Typical and anomalous results are described, and there is discussion of false positives, artifacts, and other aspects of procedures.
