Introduction to community ecotoxicology -- Biotic and abiotic factors that regulate communities -- Biomonitoring and the responses of communities to contaminants -- Experimental approaches in community ecology and ecotoxicology -- Application of multimetric and multivariate approaches in community ecotoxicology -- Disturbance ecology and the responses of communities to contaminants -- Community responses to global and atmospheric stressors -- Trophic structure, food webs, and contaminant transport. "Ecotoxicology is a rapidly expanding field of research within the international scientific community. Ecotoxicology is a hierarchical science with defined impacts at different levels of the environment. This series of five books takes each level of the biological hierarchy: Individual, Population, Community, Ecosystem and Landscape, and Global and provides the primary source of the information on the basic paradigms emerging at each level. Each book will focus on one level at a time but defines the connections between levels. Identification and discussion of ecotoxicological paradigms form the backbone for each book."--Jacket.
