Description

Editors: Richard Di Giulio, William Benson

Resulting from a joint SETAC and SOT (Society of Toxicology) workshop, this book presents an interdisciplinary approach to evaluating and managing both the effects of human activity on ecosystems and the impacts of environmental attributes on human health. Topics include:

  • biological bases of similarity and differences between human and ecosystem health
  • environmental shaping of the human sense of well-being
  • policy-making implications of ecosystem-human health interconnections
  • ecosystem buffering capacity and assimilative capacity versus human health
