Streams and rivers receive the majority of agricultural runoff, carrying insecticides, fungicides and other pesticides into estuaries and coastal zones. Strategies must be developed to help economically viable agriculture coexist with natural resources. This volume brings together toxicology experts to assess pesticide burdens in the major food-producing tropical countries. A practical guide to recent research and applications, it is essential reading for environmental professionals, ecotoxicologists, marine chemists and agrochemists.
