Description

Hot Spot Pollutants describes how pharmaceuticals and/or endocrine active compounds gain entry into the aquatic ecosystem, effects on specific organisms and the potential risk involved for the whole ecosystem. In addition it presents the latest views and developments regarding legal requirements for assessing the environmental risk of pharmaceuticals. This books includes the views of academic, industry and government scientists, and thus aims for a balanced presentation of all standpoints.

The book consists of papers that appeared previously in the journal Toxicology Letters in 2002 and 2003, and have been collected in this single volume to make them accessible to a broader audience. Authors were asked to update their contributions where necessary. See also Toxicology Letters volume 131, issues 1 and 2 (2002), and volume 142 issue 3 (2003).
