  • About this book

 In this ground-breaking work, focus is placed on in vitro approaches to the study of the toxicology of polluting agents in the aquatic environment. Methods are critically discussed and both the shortcomings and advantages are presented. The reader is asked to consider the appropriateness of a method in relation to the question being asked, and shown how to develop relevant in vitro models. The importance of validating and interpreting in vitro data is stressed.

As well as providing this valuable assessment of methods and data, "In Vitro Methods in Aquatic Toxicology" also presents a new philosophical approach central to ecotoxicology, embedding in vitro exotoxicogical methods firmly in the context of an integrated approach to determining the impacts of toxins in the environment.
