online lecture (with
on Tolerance Levels and Consumption Patterns) is based upon a chapter
of a book currently under consideration for publication as a proceedings (special
issue) of the International Conference on Environmental and Public Health
Management: Aquaculture and Environment. The conference was held on 7-9
December, 2006, at the Croucher Institute for Environmental Sciences, Hong
Kong Baptist University. That conference program included several planetary
lectures, of which one was by this author and entitled Human Health Risk
from Consumption of Fish Contaminated with Persistent Organochlorine
Compounds (POCs). The book chapter not only documented the planetary
lecture almost to its entirety, but also included several afterthoughts.
Therefore, even though the planetary lecture and the present online lecture
are similar in many aspects, they are not identical.
