Human and Ecological Risk Assessment: Theory and Practice assembles the expertise of more than fifty authorities from fifteen different fields, forming a comprehensive reference and textbook on risk assessment. Containing two dozen case studies of environmental or human health risk assessments, the text not only presents the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline, but also serves as a complete handbook and "how-to" guide for individuals conducting or interpreting risk assessments. In addition, more than 4,000 published papers and books in the field are cited. Editor Dennis Paustenbach has assembled chapters that present the most current methods for conducting hazard identification, dose-response and exposure assessment, and risk characterization components for risk assessments of any chemical hazard to humans or wildlife (fish, birds, and terrestrials). Topics addressed include hazards posed by: Air emissions Radiological hazards Contaminated soil and foods Agricultural hazards Occupational hazards Consumer products and water Hazardous waste sites Contaminated air and water The bringing together of so many of the world's authorities on these topics, plus the comprehensive nature of the text, promises to make Human and Ecological Risk Assessment the text against which others will be measured in the coming years.

This book will present a detailed analysis of how some current ecological risk assessment (ERA) studies fall short of their intended mark. It will discuss the limitations of these studies and explain how sometimes their premises are fundamentally flawed, thus producing data that is not particularly useful.

Contaminated land and the methods and legal controls governing its reclamation, for subsequent development and use, are of great concern. Assessment and reclamation of contaminated land provides a comprehensive collection of articles that cover a wide range of issues and a detailed overview of the current state of the science of contaminated land. The opening chapter of this book summarises the origins and extent of the contaminated land problem and reviews some of the latest scientific developments that are underpinning effective contaminated land management. The new UK contaminated land framework is discussed in detail, clearly outlining this new regulation and its intentions. Following on from this, risk assessment and risk management are addressed and the options for site investigation are analysed. One of the important reasons for the remediation of contaminated land is the concern over possible adverse effects on human health. Assessment and reclamation of contaminated land deals specifically with issues relating to human exposure to contaminated land and current evidence linking contaminated land with effects on public health. Assessment and reclamation of contaminated land has been contributed to by authors authoritative in their own specialist fields and will be an essential resource for those involved in the areas of land use planning and development, consultants and engineers in contaminated site investigation and remediation. It will also be of great interest to environmental regulators, and to both teachers and students in higher education.

The science of ecotoxicology and the practice of ecological risk assessment are evolving rapidly. Ecotoxicology as a subject area came into prominence in the 1960s after the publication of Rachel Carson's book on the impact of pesticides on the environment. The rise of public and scientific concern for the effects of chemical pollutants on the environment in the 1960s and 1970s led to the development of the discipline of ecotoxicology, a science that takes into account the effects of chemicals in the context of ecology. Until the early 1980s, in spite of public concern and interest among scientists, the assessment of ecological risks associated with natural or synthetic pollutants was not considered a priority issue by most government. However, as the years passed, a better understanding of the importance of ecotoxicology emerged and with it, in some countries, the progressive formalization of an ecological risk assessment process. Ecological risk assessment is a conceptual tool for organizing and analyzing data and information to evaluate the likelihood that one or more stressors are causing or will cause adverse ecological effects. Ecological risk assessment allows risk managers to consider available scientific information when selecting a course of action, in addition to other factors that may affect their decision (e. g. , social, legal, political, or economic). Ecological risk assessment includes three phases (problem formulation, analysis, and risk characterization).

Performing Ecological Risk Assessments is an extensive compilation of work discussing the components of an ecological risk assessment and how it compares with a human risk assessment. Topics considered include an introduction to environmental fate models and pharmacokinetic factors, documentation and critiques for the quantitative basis of uncertainty factors (UFs) in ecological risk assessment, a schematic scheme for deriving chemical-specific and species-specific maximum acceptable tissue concentration (MATCs), a discussion about sediment quality criteria (SQC), and discussions of methods for deriving multi-contaminant ecosystem MATCs. The book is an excellent reference for environmental toxicologists and chemists, ecological risk assessors, environmental consultants, and regulatory personnel.
