BENZENE, XYLENE, AND TOLUENE IN AQUATIC SYSTEMS: A REVIEW
|Publication Date:||1 January 1980|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF REVIEW
This review surveys the literature concerning fate and effects of benzene, xylene, and toluene in aquatic ecosystems. We incurred a great amount of difficulty in obtaining non-English articles. Literature was obtained in two ways: manual searching of selected journals, and use of computer based retrieval systems, BIOSIS (Biological Medicine), and Selected Water Research Abstracts were the data bases searched. Unpublished data on effects of toluene on the Japanese medaka were graciously provided by Drs. F.W. Stoss and T.A. Haines, Department of Biological Sciences, State University College, Brockport, N.Y.
