SETAC announces Reassessment of Metals Criteria book



The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is 
proud to offer another new publication.  

REASSESSMENT OF METALS CRITERIA FOR AQUATIC LIFE
PROTECTION

Edited by Harold L. Bergman and Elaine J. Dorward-King

Metals toxicology, environmental chemistry, chemical fate modeling, 
and regulatory practice coverge in this reassessment of the 
scientific and engineering basis for regulating metals in aquatic 
environments.  In this 1996 SETAC-sponsored workshop, forty 
participants from academia, government, and industry reached 
consensus that a departure is needed from purely observational and 
empirical evaluation of organism response to metal exposure.  
Instead, sound permitting decisions demand input from mathematical 
models that integrate fundamental changes in target tissue with 
site-specific metal chemistry and link to receiving water exposure 
models.  REASSESSMENT OF METALS CRITERIA FOR
AQUATIC LIFE PROTECTION offers expert guidance and signifcant 
recommendations toward the development of a workable methodology for 
assessing the effects of metals exposure on aquatic organisms.
