Speciation and Bioavailability in Aquatic Systems is the first comprehensive
review to deal with fundamental concepts and models, speciation measurements
and field applications in metal speciation and bioavailability in aquatic
environments. This volume provides a thorough review of current developments
concerning the interactions between trace metals and aquatic organisms.
Metal Speciation and Bioavailability in Aquatic Systems provides:
- The first comprehensive approach to the subject covering all aspects
of trace metal ecotoxicology in the environment.
- Essential reading for researchers and graduate students who will
appreciate critical reviews of classical and modern methods of metal
- Contributions from leading scientists from many disciplines assessing
both analytical and physical methods applied to this growing field
of environmental analysis.
- An introduction to the use of laboratory bioassays as predictive
tools for understanding trace metal—organism interactions.
- An examination of the use and limitations of bioassays in management
The interdisciplinary nature of this topic is highlighted in Metal
Speciation and Bioavailability in Aquatic Systems, ensuring that this
volume is invaluable for chemists, biochemists, biologists, ecologists
and environmental engineers involved in the fields of metal ecotoxicology,
metal speciation, environmental and analytical chemistry, and the management
of trace metals in aquatic systems.
