A textbook of modern toxicology, 4th ed.

Ed. by Ernest Hodgson.

John Wiley & Sons


648 pages




While there are excellent general reference texts available in toxicology, and specialized monographs on particular subtopics, Hodgson's (toxicology, North Carolina State U.) continues to be one of the few textbooks available for use in upper-level undergraduate and graduate general toxicology courses, as well as those in environmental, pharmacological, medical and veterinary toxicology. The 29 chapters, contributed by 23 American academics and researchers, provide a general overview, followed by sections covering classes of toxicants, toxicant process in vivo, toxic action, organ toxicity, applied toxicology, environmental toxicology, and new approaches in the field. Incorporating recent advances in the molecular and integrative aspects of toxicology, the fourth edition includes new chapters on molecular methods, bioinformatics, and systems biology. The revised edition also includes new end-of-chapter questions and an online solutions manual for college instructors.
