Title: Glossary of terms used in ecotoxicology
Andersen, John H Duffus,
and Douglas M. Templeton
To facilitate the application of chemistry in ecotoxicology, there
is a need for a glossary addressing the terms in ecotoxicology essential
for communication between the disciplines. This project will create
such a glossary, reflecting IUPAC's concern about the impact of chemicals
on health and the environment. It will also complement the previous
projects which resulted in glossaries in toxicology and toxicokinetics
published in Pure and Applied Chemistry which have received
wide acceptance and use.
This glossary will give definitions of terms used in ecotoxicology.
It will include terms related to chemical speciation in the environment,
sampling, monitoring and environmental analysis, adverse ecological
effects of chemicals, ecological biomarkers, and environmental distribution
