Illustrated Toxicology

Stručný popis

Světoznámému toxikologovi se podařilo vytvořit velice inspirativní učebnici toxikologie nejen pro studenty, ale i terénní odborníky a specialisty. Publikace je plná testů, grafů a ilustrací zaměřených na problematiku toxikologie. Je rozdělena do 17 kapitol od všeobecné toxikologie, přes principy toxikologie, analýzu rizik, dispozice a mechanizmy toxicity, působení toxinů na organizmy, jedy a jedovaté rostliny, radiační nebezpečí, toxicita léků. Detailně je popsán i vliv na okolní prostředí, ekosystémy, domácí i divoká zvířata. Kapitoly jsou koncipovány jako otázky s odpověďmi umožňující prověření stupně znalostí uživatele publikace. Publikace je napěchována 237 ilustracemi, 3400 otázkami a odpovědi, což se stává zdrojem inspirace pro pedagogy přednášející tuto z mého pohledu nudnou disciplínu. Své uplatnění publikace nalezne jistě v knihovně veterinárních i humánních mediků, farmakologů, přírodovědců, ochránců přírody a akademiků.
