This database covers environmental science topics from disciplines such as atmospheric science, biology, biotechnology, ecology, engineering, and microbiology. It also covers agricultural research including agricultural economics, animal and veterinary sciences, aquaculture and fisheries, farming and farming systems, food and human nutrition, forestry, and plant sciences. It includes Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) and Digests and all the records from the National Agricultural Library’s AGRICOLA database. Has full text content and indexing of peer-reviewed and trade journals, magazines, books, news sources, government publications, reports, working papers, conference papers and proceedings.
Combines information on scientific research and government policies in a single resource. Topics of growing concern are extensively covered from the standpoints of atmosphere, emissions, mathematical models, effects on people and animals, and environmental action in response to global pollution issues
Major areas of coverage include agricultural biotechnology, air quality, aquatic pollution, bacteriology, ecology, energy resources, environmental biotechnology, environmental engineering, environmental impact statements (U.S.), hazardous waste, industrial hygiene, microbiology (related to industrial & environmental issues), pollution (land, air, water, noise, solid waste, radioactive), risk assessment, safety science, toxicology & toxic emissions, water pollution, waste management, and water resource issues. Subfiles include: Aquatic Science & Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA) 3: Aquatic Pollution & Environmental Quality (1990-Current); Bacteriology Abstracts (Microbiology B) (1982-Current); Biotechnology Research Abstracts; Ecology Abstracts (1982-Current); Environment Abstracts; Environmental Engineering Abstracts (1990-Current); Environmental Impact Statements: Digests (1985-Current); Environmental Impact Statements: Full Text; Health & Safety Science Abstracts (1981-Current); Industrial and Applied Microbiology Abstracts (Microbiology A) (1982-Current); Pollution Abstracts (1981-Current); ProQuest Deep Indexing: Environmental Sciences; Risk Abstracts (1990-Current); Sustainability Science Abstracts (1995-Current); Toxicology Abstracts ); (1981-Current); Water Resources Abstracts (1967-Current)
Provides single chemical toxicity information for aquatic and terrestrial life which is useful for examining impacts of chemicals on the environment. Peer-reviewed literature is the primary source for the database including information on the species, chemical, test methods, and results. Another source of test results is independently compiled data files (such as the Pesticide Ecotoxicity database) provided by various United States and International government agencies. ECOTOX is a unified interface providing access to three U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) ecological effects databases: AQUIRE (all aquatic species including freshwater and marine); TERRETOX (terrestrial animal mainly wildlife); and PHYTOTOX (terrestrial plant). Ecology, Toxicology.
