Abstract

Includes in-depth coverage of environmental risk assessment and uncertainty --- Discusses biochemical and physiological responses ranging from individual organs and tissues to the complex interactions that occur within entire ecosystems and landscapes --- Reviews readily available (Q)SAR approaches, species-to-species extrapolation, and the use of these in regulatory situations --- Covers the extrapolation of effects across levels of biological organization --- Presents extrapolation tools for mixtures of defined and undefined components and how to use them --- Addresses the differences between organisms in diverse biogeographic regions and extrapolation from smaller to larger spatial units.
