Ecotoxicology, New Challenges and New Approaches provides the latest in new challenges for research in ecotoxicology. In six comprehensive chapters, the book deals with the long term effect of stressors on biological communities, the effect of pollutants on the chemical communication among organisms, the impact of multiple stressors and of emerging pollutants (microplastics), and at the use of new technologies (omics) in ecotoxicology.

Key Features

  • Addresses "emerging issues" that pose new challenges for ecotoxicology research
  • Resolves several topics, such as the long-term effect of stressors on biological communities and the effect of pollutants on chemical communication between organisms
  • Analyzes the impact of multiple stressors and emerging pollutants (microplastics)
  • Explains new technologies (omics) in ecotoxicology


Students, researchers, engineers, engineers (as risk assessors), universities; chemical industries, public management institutions, research consultants
