SUMMARY

''A valuable resource for those concerned with experimental teratology and risk assessment and those requiring general information about the causes of birth defects. The treatment of these issues is sophisticated, succinct, and logical.'' --- American Scientist, from a review of a previous volume The current volume covers intergenerational factors in pregnancy outcome, the thresholds for developmental toxicants, and four other subjects
