The re-evaluation of many compounds for their long-term toxicity to humans and the environment has resulted in extensive reforms of the pesticide industry. This book explores the actions of pesticides and their effects on non-target organisms, the environment and human health. In addition to the chemical and biological actions of pesticides, the volume covers the regulatory framework within which manufacturers of compounds function, and the influence that pressure groups and the media have on the industry.
