dc.description.abstractAn expert assessment of the effects on human health and the environment posed by ammonia. Prepared by a 14-member task group, the book bases its evaluations on more than 600 published reports of epidemiological, laboratory, and clinical investigations, including controlled studies in man. The most extensive sections of the book are devoted to the effects of ammonia in the aquatic and terrestrial environments where, as a result of urbanization, industry, and farming, significant toxic effects of ammonia may arise. Readers will find especially detailed assessments of the effects on aquatic animals as well as effects on cattle, swine, and poultry resulting from continuous exposure under confined housing conditions. Information on the kinetics and metabolism of ammonia and on its effects on experimental animals and in vitro systems is also presenteden
