Book Description:
This book provides selected authorship on anthropogenic impacts caused by arsenic, lead, chromium and other pollutants and contaminants emanating from identified activities (e.g. tanning industry, effect of irrigation water and exposure to living tissue). The basis of the study is to improve on the knowledge and spread awareness to the general public.

In this book, identified impacts associated with arsenic, chromium, lead, salinity induced processes, effluents and selected synthetic tannins provide a preview of how identified anthropogenic activities can degrade and affect terrestrial, aquatic and human health. In light of this, the individual chapters pursue (to some extent) an experimental and descriptive approach in explaining these aspects.

All the contributors of these chapters are specialists in their areas of specialization with very strong research backgrounds. Thus, the book has a formidable basis of communicating the science that is relevant for agronomical activities when evaluating the effluent generation from anthropogenic view, its disposal, potential impacts towards irrigation related to specific geographical areas and the human occupational risks involved overall. It is, therefore, apparent that identifying the denudating aspects of the ecosystems is a paramount step towards building appropriate diagnostic, preventive and curative capabilities in managing the environmental sustainably.

Book Reviews

"This book seems to be a potential as a reference of some cornerstones to carry over this ecosystem to the next ages. It has a wide angled perspective of environmental aspects comprising salinity, harmful effects to living cell, xenobiotics, abiotic and biotic impacts. I strongly recommend the book to the academicians and researchers willing to contribute to the particular branch of environmental science.” - Reviewed by Bahri Basaran, Dr., Professor, EGE University, Department of Leather Engineering, Turkey

"This book provides readers an in-depth knowledge on important topics related to anthropogenic activities that can degrade and affect terrestrial, aquatic and human health. I highly recommend the book to the academic and professional audience who are interested in conserving the ecosytems health and sustainability. I am also confident that the book can be used as training manual in environment related training programs." - Mekonnen Hailemariam, Professor, College of Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture-Addis Ababa University/ & Value Addition Expert - COMESA/Leather and Leather Products Institute
