    schema:description "Following a brief survey of several central ecological theories, a logical development of the subject from the cellular to the ecosystem level is used. This begins by considering the biochemical and cellular basis of pollutant assimilation and toxicity, and the variety of methods used in biological monitoring. The use of tolerant organisms in biological remediation and reclamation is followed by a consideration of the problems of releasing genetically engineered organisms into the environment. Simple population models are used to illustrate the problems of setting fish quotas, conserving single species and the control of pests."@en ;
