About this title

Synopsis:

With its 104 chapters, this Encyclopedia of aquatic ecotoxicology reveals the diversity of issues, problems and challenges that have faced, and are facing today, receiving environments. It also indicates ways by which tools, strategies and future investigations can contribute to correct, minimize, solve and prevent water quality degradation.

Structured homogeneously, the chapters convey salient information on historical background, features, characteristics, uses and/or applications of treated topics, often complemented by illustrations and case studies, as well as by conclusions and prospects. This work is most suitable for teaching purposes. Academics, for example, could literally deliver comprehensive lectures to students simply based on chapter outlines and contents.

About the Author:

Until his retirement in late December 2008, Christian Blaise, D.Sc., was a senior research scientist at the Saint-Lawrence Centre, Environment Canada, Québec Region, Montréal, where he headed the Aquatic Toxicology Unit (ATU), River Ecosystems Research Section. Currently an Emeritus research scientist in the same Centre, he is still actively engaged with Environment Canada colleagues in several research projects linked to water quality investigations.

He continues to hold an adjunct professor status at UQAR-ISMER (Université du Québec à Rimouski, Institut des Sciences de la Mer de Rimouski) where he contributes to teaching and provides mentorship to (under)graduate students in the field of ecotoxicology.

Jean-François Férard, D.Sc., is a Professor at the University of Metz (Lorraine province of France), where he heads a research unit entitled “Laboratoire des Interactions Ecotoxicologie, Biodiversité, Ecosystems” (LIEBE), recognized by CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique).

He also managed an undergraduate school program dedicated to Environmental Engineering and promoted knowledge and use of ecotoxicity tests by organizing, until 2011, an annual course entitled "Ecotoxicity and Carcinogenicity Testing of Chemicals, Plant protection products, Biocides, Effluents, Sediments and Contaminated Soils " which provides a theoretical and practical view of numerous ecotoxicity tests to decision-makers, industrialists and consultants.

His teaching duties involve fundamental and applied Ecotoxicology and Toxicology, Physiology and Physiotoxicology and other related disciplines.
