From a June 1992 workshop in Luso, Portugal, 26 papers explore the potential of biological markers to help understand the nature and extent of human exposure and risk from environmental toxicants. They discuss such topics as their use to prioritize community health problems, as indicators of human exposure, and the use of DNA adducts to predict cancer risk quantitatively. No index.
