Easy Field Guide to Poisonous Plants and Critters of Arizona (Easy Field Guides)
Toxins are poisons produced in nature; this Easy Field Guide is about those poisons. Venoms are toxins that are injected by a bite or sting. Nature's other toxins are absorbed through the blood stream, digestive tract, lungs, or skin. They affect mucous membranes, tissues, or the circulatory system. Reactions can range from very mild irritation to servere discomfort and even death. Poisons affect individuals differently depending on their age, health, and heredity.
