Abstract : A total of 15 Contaminant Hazard Reviews have been published since 1985 (Eisler 1985a,b,c,d; 1986a,b,c,d; 1987a,b; 1988a,b; 1989; Eisler and Jacknow 1985; Odenkirchen and Eisler 1988). These reviews briefly summarized ecological and toxicological aspects of various chemical pollutants, with particular emphasis on fishery and wildlife resources. Specifically, reviews were prepared on selected agricultural pesticides (mirex, :carbofuran., diazinon, toxaphene, chlorpyrifos), metalloids (arsenic, selenium), metals (cadmium, lead, chromium, mercury, tin), and organic industrial wastes (polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons).
