This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

Recent advances have been made on the identification of pollutants in indoor environments, the health effects associated with indoor or personal exposures, and interventions that can be implemented by occupants to mitigate exposures. The focus of this book is on exposures that occur typically, but not exclusively, in residences. The contributors cover a wide selection of chemical and biological pollutants, including lead, phthalates, flame retardants, mold, infectious diseases, traffic-related particulate, pesticides, PCBs, VOCs, and asthma triggers. The book also includes a chapter on the plight of teachers working in PCB-contaminated schools.
