   Ecological Risk Assessment By:- Glenn W. Suter II. Primarily to do with effects of toxins on non-human biota. Primarily aimed at environmental toxicologists/chemists. Very informative, but hard going if not a chemist.

  Nature Via Nurture  By:- Matt Ridley. A slight deviation in that this is on the human genome and how influential are environmental factors. Re-visits this debate in an informative and challenging manner.

  Biology  By Campbell and Reece. A general Biology text aimed at graduates, but it is very informative, has masses of information, and is a good read - one of the best biology books ever written. How often we forget some of the basics of the biological systems we are trying to understand.
