About this book

This book discusses bioavailability concepts and methods, summarizing the current knowledge on bioavailability science, as well as possible pathways for integrating bioavailability into risk assessment and the regulation of organic chemicals. Divided into 5 parts, it begins with an overview of chemical distribution in soil and sediment, as well as the bioavailability and bioaccumulation of chemicals in plants, soil, invertebrates and vertebrates (including humans). It then focuses on the impact of sorption processes and reviews bioavailability measurement methods. The closing chapters discuss the impact of bioavailability studies on chemical risk assessment, and highlights further research needs. Written by a multi-disciplinary team of authors, it is an essential resource for scientists in academia and industry, students, as well as for authorities.

About the authors

Jose Julio Ortega-Calvo has been a researcher at Institute of Natural Resources and Agrobiology of Seville, Spanish National Research Council (IRNAS-CSIC) since 1996, and has worked on the bioavailability and biodegradation of organic pollutants for the last 25 years. After completing his Ph.D. at University of Seville in 1991, he worked on different aspects of microbial ecology during postdoctoral stays at the University of Amsterdam (UvA, The Netherlands) and Cornell University (USA). Dr. Ortega was the President in Europe of the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC Europe) in 2016/2017. He is a member of the Stakeholder Bureau of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), member of the External Science Advisory Panel (ESAP) of the Long Range Research Initiative at the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC-LRI), and Associate Editor of Science of the Total Environment journal.

John Robert Parsons completed his PhD on the biodegradation of chlorinated aromatic compounds at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Otto Hutzinger. He currently works at the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics at the same university. His research focuses on the environmental behaviour of organic contaminants and how they interact with natural biogeochemical processes, particularly the fate of organic pollutants or contaminants in the environment and how they interact with organic matter (sorption) and with microbial communities (biodegradation), and the relationships between these interactions (bioavailability).
