Contaminant Hazard Reviews of 35 common organic and inorganic pollutants –   Each review describes sources and uses, physical, chemical, and metabolic properties; concentrations in field collections of abiotic materials and living organisms; lethal and sublethal effects including effects on survival, growth, reproduction, metabolism, mutagenicity, teratogenicity, and carcinogenicity; proposed criteria for the protection of human health and sensitive natural resources; and recommendations for additional research.

Species Decline: Contaminants as a Contributing Factor – A searchable database summarizing nomenclature, phylogeny, geographic location, life history, population size and status, stressors and sources of stressors (with special emphasis on contaminants and pollution) presumed to have caused the decline, proposed recovery tasks, and research needs.

National Library of Medicine gateway page to environmental health and toxicology specialized information services, including “toxline”.

Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development gateway page of the environmental directorate containing extensive information on European environmental health and safety issues and databases
