Abstract: Environmental toxicology is the study of chemicals in the environment and their toxic effects on wildlife and humans. My research focuses on the measurement of chemicals in the environment and trying to relate the results to toxic effects. This field covers natural elements such as arsenic and mercury as well as anthropogenic (man-made) chemicals such as DDT, PCB and many other chemicals.
