This data source summarizes information about contamination that effect fish, wildlife, invertebrates, and other non-human living resources. It differs from existing databases in that its emphasis is on environmental toxicology and it summarizes information on these issues into a single, easily searchable source. Some human information was also summarized when it was easy to do so or seemed important to general understanding, but the main efforts were directed at summarizing and compiling information of importance to general environmental toxicology rather than human toxicology. It contains information on 118 topics, including 30 entries covering the oil products most commonly spilled into fresh and marine waters of the U.S., according to the EPA, and 63 entries covering other oil-related topics. Files retrieved from the database are in .pdf format.
