Environmental Pollution: Health and Toxicology offers a comprehensive account of environmental pollution, environmental heath and environmental toxicology. While introducing different types of pollution, it simultaneously describes their effects on ecosystems (ecotoxicology), man, animals and plants. Due emphasis has been given to recently emerging problems viz. indoor air pollution, ground water pollution and solid waste pollution. It incorporates separate chapters on environmental toxicology of heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides and organic solvents. The book is an invaluable resource for those studying environmental pollution, ecology, ecotoxicology, epidemiology, occupational health, public health, environmental chemistry, medicine, environmental engineering and other related disciplines.
