This reference contains a staggering number of well-researched and commonly used terms from toxicology and related fields. Scientists from virtually every environmentally oriented field, from chemistry to nursing to agriculture, will find what they need in this dictionary. It features vast coverage of terms, from chemical names and pathogenic terms to official abbreviations, environmental topics, and biological definitions. Each entry categorizes all major definitions and usage, with extensive cross-references for synonyms and related entries.
Including nearly every major technical toxicological term as applied to both human and environmental studies, Lewis' Dictionary of Toxicology is broader and more comprehensive than any other to date. It is based on terms found in more than 600 journals, 15,000 reprints of scientific papers, and numerous leading reference sources.
