By Ronald Eisler

advanced and ever altering in its varieties and services, the point mercury follows a convoluted direction throughout the atmosphere and up the foodstuff chain. the method is complex extra through the truth that the adaptation among tolerable usual heritage degrees and destructive results within the atmosphere is phenomenally small and nonetheless no longer thoroughly understood. Written by means of well-known nationwide and overseas authority on chemical chance overview, Ronald Eisler, Mercury dangers to residing Organisms explores the organic, actual, and chemical houses of mercury and its compounds. wealthy in evidence and data, the e-book presents a basic examine the issues.

A synthesis of present medical reports, the e-book files the importance of mercury concentrations in abiotic fabrics, vegetation, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, elasmobranch, fishes, and birds, in addition to people and different mammals. the writer reports ancient and present makes use of and assets of mercury in addition to its actual, chemical, organic, and biochemical homes. He summarizes mercury delivery and speciation techniques and analytical innovations for mercury size. The e-book contains assurance of lethality to natural world, family animals, and people; management routes and their results; and sublethal results akin to cancers, start defects, and chromosomal aberrations.
