Ecotoxicology Modeling - Emerging Topics in Ecotoxicology 2 (Paperback)James Devillers (editor)
- We can order this
Ecotoxicology Modeling is a comprehensive and well-documented text providing a collection of computational methods to the ecotoxicologists primarily interested in the study of the adverse effects of chemicals, their mechanisms of action and/or their environmental fate and behavior. Avoiding mathematical jargon, the book presents numerous case studies to enable the reader to understand the interest but also the limitations of linear and nonlinear models in ecotoxicology.
Written by an international team of scientists, Ecotoxicology Modeling is of primary interest to those whose research or professional activity is directly concerned with the development and application of models in ecotoxicology. It is also intended to provide the graduate and post-graduate students with a clear and accessible text covering the main types of modeling approaches used in environmental sciences.

From the reviews:"This edited book focuses on the application of a wide range of models and modelling techniques on issues within environmental chemistry and (eco)toxicology. ... there are certainly some interesting and stimulating papers within this book. For me (as someone with an interest in the ecological aspect of ecotoxicology) papers such as those on the potential use of agent-based models in ecotoxicology and on the application of the dynamic energy budget theory represent stimulating contributions to the field."
