Clinical Toxinology Resources Website ( www.toxinology.com )

The Clinical Toxinology Resources Website is a premier site for information on venomous animals and poisonous animals, plants and mushrooms. It covers the whole World, with both general information and information about particular organisms, located through a searchable database, that allows users to look for an animal, plant or mushroom, based on a common name, a scientific name or family, a country or region.

International Society on Toxinology ( www.toxinology.org )

The International Society on Toxinology was founded in 1962 by a group on scientists and clinicians interested in advancing the science of toxinology. The Society had it's first international meeting in 1966 in Atlantic City, USA and it's Journal, Toxicon, was first published in 1963.

The purpose of the Society is to advance knowledge on the properties of toxins and antitoxins and to bring together scholars interested in these substances through a common Society. Membership consists of those who have conducted and published meritorious original investigations in toxinology, while persons who do not qualify for membership but are interested in the field of toxinology are eligible for associate membership.

This website is designed to give IST members and others interested in toxinology access to IST information on forthcoming meetings, subscription payment, membership profiles and related matters.

 


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL SITE USERS : The principle aim of this site is to provide information useful to improving outcomes for humans suffering from envenoming or poisoning by animals, plants or mushrooms. We make a reasonable attempt to verify accuracy of information listed on this site. However, we cannot access every published paper of potential relevance, either because they are not available to us or are in a language we cannot translate internally. Equally, we cannot list knowledge which is not yet reported or known. It should not be assumed that humankind currently knows all there is to know about any species, even for common species. Further, we cannot control how users will interpret the information provided on this site. We therefore do not accept legal responsibility for use of the information provided and we require that all users use information from this site at their own risk.
