Current problems of ecotoxicology


, : Current problems of ecotoxicology. Mittelungen aus dem Gebiete der Lebensmitteluntersuchung und Hygiene 69(2): 233-263

The goals, principles, methodology and tasks of the new science of ecotoxicology are discussed. Points of entry and fates of natural and synthetic pollutants in the environment are discussed, with special stress laid on contamination of the food chain. Particular points mentioned include uptake of systemic pesticides by food plants, concentration of heavy metals and organochlorines in seafoods, and of radioactive isotopes of alkaline earth metals in milk.
