book description
Environmental pollution by man-made persistent organic chemicals (POCs) has been a serious global issue for over half a century. Exposure to certain POCs may result in environmental and health effects including skin disorders, liver damage, birth defects, brain development, and certain types of cancers. Global Contamination Trends of Persistent Organic Chemicals provides comprehensive coverage of spatial and temporal trends of classical and emerging contaminants in aquatic, terrestrial, and marine ecosystems, including the Arctic and Antarctic ecosystems.
