Ecotoxicology of Wild Mammals brings together the latest research on the exposure and effects of environmental contaminants in wild mammal populations.

The underlying theme is encompassed by four questions:
  • What exactly do we know about environmental contaminants in wild mammals?
  • What are the commonalities and differences between mammal orders/species in the effects that contaminants have?
  • How and to what degree of accuracy can we predict the adverse effects of environmental contaminants on mammalian wildlife?
  • How significant are contaminant insults compared with other density–independent and –dependent factors such as habitat loss, climatic factors and disease?
Written by a team of international authors who have led the research on contaminants in mammals, the underlying scientific principles and issues raised will have significance throughout the world. This will be invaluable to those studying the effects of environmental pollutants on mammals, regulatory agencies and those carrying out environmental impact assessment.
