About this title


Ten papers from the September 1998 conference in Pellston, Michigan address different aspects of the ecological assessment paradigm. They discuss soil management, fate and transport of contaminants, and measures of bioavailability. Together the papers provide a unified framework representing all the steps of a complete risk assessment and the management of contaminated soils. The resulting summary should be useful to regulators and risk assessors. Contributors include scientists from North America and Europe. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

From the Inside Flap:

A multidisciplinary effort is required not only to understand and integrate the complexities of soil–chemical interactions with biological systems but also to summarize the information in a way that regulators and risk assessors can use. The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) convened a workshop that combined all these efforts and resulted in ideas that extended beyond the participants’ specific areas of expertise and collectively advanced the concepts in ecological risk assessment (ERA) of soils.

The publication objective was to integrate the information from relevant subdisciplines into a unified reference framework containing all the steps that are needed to conduct a complete risk assessment and management of contaminated soils. This product adds to the standard ERA paradigm with focus areas addressing soil management, fate and transport of contaminants, and measures of bioavailability. Using a broad definition of soils because most contaminated sites are not natural soils and have been subjected to anthropogenic modifications, this book focuses on assessing risks to biological receptors from the presence of chemicals in soils.

Contaminated Soils: From Soil–Chemical Interactions to Ecosystem Management is one of many SETAC publications that offer timely reviews and new perspectives on current topics relating to broad environmental toxicology and chemistry issues. SETAC publications often are based on the collaborative efforts of top scientists and policymakers, and they undergo extensive prepublication peer reviews. SETAC assumes an active leadership in the development of educational programs and publishes the peer-reviewed, international journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
