Contents Notes
"Environmental Endocrine Disrupters presents the latest research in reproductive toxicology. This book focuses on endocrine disruption by contaminants in humans, other mammals, and other vertebrates. Specifically, it addresses the problem of endocrine disrupting contaminants (EDCs) from an evolutionary comparative perspective. It provides a background on the evolution of the vertebrate endocrine system, as well as the evolution of vertebrate systems associated with lipid storage and utilization. (Many EDCs are stored in and released from fat stores.) Specific aspects of the EDC problem include effects on the reproductive, immune, and nervous systems and Guillette also examines the liver and thyroid. Each chapter explores the evolution of endocrine signaling and the comparative nature of the supporting data and separates the role of EDCs in adults from developing embryos."--Jacket.
