Toxicology and T Guide - Resources and Review

Database summarising the results from aquatic acute toxicity tests conducted by the US Geological Survey, as a starting point for hazard assessment of contaminants. The database is searchable by species or chemical, or a combination of the two. Also includes two datasets
of chemical IDs and of Acute Toxicity Test Results - which can be merged to provide a complete dataset with all toxicity tests, species, and chemical information.
Set of links to selected, evaluated and annotated Internet resources relevant to animal bites, stings, and poisons.
Collection of material providing an introduction to the field of toxicology and chemical safety. Offers information on the physical form of chemicals of which the major types are solid, liquid, gas and vapour, possible health effects of chemical substances, methods of data retrieval, details of hazard and risk assessment, and a glossary. Also provides background information about environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology.
Set of databases with information on toxicology and hazardous chemicals. Provides access to a Hazardous Substances Data Bank, Chemical Carcinogenesis Research Information System, Genetic Toxicology / Mutagenicity Data Bank and Integrated Risk Information System. Also facilitates searching of Environmental Protection Agency files, relevant literature and additional databases including MEDLINE, AIDSDRUG, ChemID, HealthSTAR and TOXLINE.
A database of information about environmental toxicology. Includes over 100 environmental contaminants, information on chemical elements, compounds, and products. The encyclopaedia is also a reference for determining the potential impact of the concentration of a certain substance.
Source of information on over 2000 hazardous substances, from acenaphthene to zircomium. Fact sheets for each substance are stored as PDF files and substances are listed by their common names.
