Fundamental Toxicology is a concise and comprehensive review of toxicology. It is based on the highly successful Fundamental Toxicology for Chemists and has been enriched and expanded. Every chapter in this new edition has been revised and updated, and four new chapters have been added. With contributions from internationally recognised experts in their field, this broad-based introduction to the topic covers both well-established and rapidly developing areas of toxicology, such as toxicogenomics, reproductive toxicology, behavioural toxicology and ecotoxicology. The book was written and published with the support of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). The book includes new information on: risk assessment and risk management; toxicogenomics; effects of toxic substances on the human body; environmental distribution of chemicals and ecotoxicology; clinical toxicology; pharmaceutical toxicology; and aspects of laboratory measurement and safe laboratory practice. Fundamental Toxicology is ideal for students and includes extensive pedagogical features, such as an extensive glossary, a bibliography after each chapter and recommended further reading. It is also designed for teachers and lecturers, especially those who may be teaching toxicology for the first time. Included is a suggested curriculum for using the text to teach toxicology to students from various scientific disciplines. Professionals working in toxicology and related fields will find this an invaluable guide.

Review quote

A useful reference for anyone needing to improve their under-standing of the concepts underpinning toxicological assessment. -- Chemistry & Industry, 4th September 2006 (Helen Barnes) Chemistry and Industry Reflects important changes in the scientific understanding of toxicology, as well as the increase in legislation...every chapter has been reviewed and updated...provides a comprehensive introduction to toxicology...well written, wide-ranging, introduction to toxicology which will be useful to both students and professionals working in toxicology and related fields...The price, GBP40, is very reasonable for a scientific book of 490 pages in hardback. In fact, for the price of two pints of lager and a couple of pizzas you can buy an excellent introduction to toxicology. The choice is yours. -- British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Summer 2007 (Tom Allen) British Toxicology Society Newsletter This book although published before the enactment of REACH, provides an excellent introduction to toxicology and will provide the reader with a solid grounding in the subject. Each chapter is generally well written by an established expert in the field, and the text carries both an air of authority and depth, giving the reader confidence in the quality of the presented material. Overall this is an excellent and authoritative text that can be strongly recommended to students and teachers across many scientific fields, as well as practitioners. The authors and publishers should be commended for keeping the cover price to a very reasonable GBP40, making this valuable text within in the financial reach of students and not just libraries and their tutors. -- Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, Volume 8, Issues 2, November 2007 (Adrian Watson) Reviews (Formally Physical Sciences Educational Reviews) NO LONGER RUNNING
