The compilation of the articles in this derivative emphasizes ecological components and fundamental paradigms of ecotoxicology. The alphabetical listing of toxic substances and chemicals in Part B and C serves as a quick reference for professionals. Additionally, the international focus of Ecotoxicology and the range of toxins t covers will make it an indispensable resource to scientists.

The password protected companion website will contain Estimation of Ecotoxicological Parameters (EEP) software developed by the author. EEP allows users to get ecotoxicological properties of chemicals in data bases or they can estimate them (there are only a few percentages in the data base). There are very specific estimation methods that only estimate for instance the properties for halogenated aromatic compounds or there are very general estimation methods. EEP covers the very general methods and is fast to use but gives in general estimation of higher uncertainty than the very specific methods.

- Provides an overview of the theory and application of global ecology.

- International focus and range of ecosystems makes "Ecotoxicology" an indispensable resource to scientists.

- Based on the best selling "Encyclopedia of Ecology."

- Full color figures and tables support the text and aid in understanding.
