Marine Bivalve Mollusks and Emerging Pollutants: Toxicological Impacts provides the most updated and comprehensive knowledge of the toxicological impacts of a variety of emerging pollutants on marine bivalve mollusk species. In addition to synthesizing recent toxicological findings, the book also discusses toxification mechanisms, current challenges, and future research prospects. Written by international experts, this book assesses new advances in the toxicological impacts of pollutants, including microplastics, bromide flame retardants, nanomaterials, pharmaceutical residues, personal care products, pesticides, and perfluorinated compounds. In addition, it details how these can affect reproduction, embryonic development, metabolism, and immune systems of marine bivalves. Behavioral responses and neuroendocrine regulation is also discussed. Toxification mechanisms are interpreted at both physiological and molecular levels. The book concludes with current research and environmental challenges and potentials for further, future study techniques.
