Summary

This book provides a broad, interdisciplinary assessment of the hazards presented by direct and indirect environmental contaminants to humans. It explores disparate aspects of risk assessment ranging from molecular mechanisms to the practical and administrative issues of environmental management. The book's first three sections focus on principles relevant to living organisms in general, the fourth addresses the question of risks to human health, while the final section considers issues relevant to both "human" and "natural" environments.
