The environment is increasingly recognized as having a powerful effect on human and ecological health, as well as on specific types of human morbidity, mortality, and disability. While the public relies heavily on federal and state regulatory agencies for protection from exposures to hazardous substances, it often looks to health professionals for information about routes of exposure and the nature and extent of associated adverse health consequences. However, most health professionals acquire only a minimal knowledge of toxicology during their education and training. In 1967 the National Library of Medicine (NLM) created an information resource, known today as the Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program (TEHIP). In 1995 the NLM asked the Institute of Medicine to examine the accessiblity and utility of the TEHIP databases for the work of health professionals. This resulting volume contains chapters on TEHIP and other toxicology and environmental health databases, on understanding the toxicology and environmental health information needs of health professionals, on increasing awareness of information resources through training and outreach, on accessing and navigating the TEHIP databases, and on program issues and future directions.

The scope of this book includes a discussion of the major types of chemicals involved; the general properties of chemicals and biologic systems as they influence the occurrence of detrimental biologic effects; the methods used to demonstrate these effects; and the basis for clinical diagnosis and therapy of harmful effects of chemicals on humans. Individual examples are used to demonstrate each of the principles under discussion. This text is an invaluable resource for toxicologists as well as a comprehensive introduction to the topic for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in toxicology and public health.

In order to keep track of all the compounds and pathogens affecting plant metabolism and development, you would need to spend all your waking hours combing periodicals and the Internet in dozens of languages, as new toxins via pollutants and migratory or mutant pathogens are being discovered every day. Plant Toxicology, Fourth Edition starts with a basic overview of the plant as a complex living organism. The first chapters introduce plant structure and organization. Starting with the cell as the smallest elementary unit, the emphasis is on plant-specific features with respect to their susceptibility to environmental contaminants. Hock and Elstner, who between them have published over 500 original papers on plants and plant disease, called upon experts from across the world to contribute to this essential text. The book analyzes processes central to plant metabolism, including uptake, distribution, and secretion of toxic material, and focuses on the recognition and prevention of damage associated with environmental pollutants. It studies diseases caused by viruses, subviral organisms, phytoplasmas, fungal and bacterial pathogens. Learn about Pathology in Plants as an Integral Interconnected Facet of their Environment The text is designed to enable you to classify and target specific forms of plant damage. Equally important, it never loses sight of the princple that plants are not isolated organisms, but rather exist as participants in complex environments, which must be taken into account when studying the delivery and impact of toxins. Supplying more than 1500 current references, Plant Toxicology, Fourth Edition is required reading for all plant, crop, soil, and environmental scientists; botanists; agronomists; agriculturists; horticulturists; biochemists; foresters; plant growers; and upper level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
