Extrapolation practice for ecotoxicological effect characterization of chemicals.


Extrapolation practice for ecotoxicological effect characterization of chemicals.

Ed. by Keith R. Solomon et al.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


380 pages




Thirty-four international researchers from academic, government, and industry settings contribute ten chapters describing the various methods of extrapolation in the framework of ecological risk assessment and identifying the data needs and situations where these extrapolations can be most usefully applied. The chapters in the book follow the generalized framework for assessing risks, starting with a problem formulation and ending with a discussion of uncertainty and data needs. Directed to risk managers and to the scientific community as a whole, the major focus of the text is on extrapolation of chemical effects. The books also deals with extrapolation of exposures in the context of interactions between the toxicant and the matrix, and contains a practical guide to the application of procedures of use to regulators and risk managers at several levels and in the education of students in these disciplines.
