Abstract

The use of agrochemicals in developing countries has increased greatly in recent years and those used in greatest quantities, insecticides and herbicides, tend to have the most severe side-effects on the environment. Following UNCED 1992 and its adoption of Agenda 21, there is now a requirement for all countries to carry out pesticide impact monitoring and assessment to counter environmental degradation. The recent UNCED Summit 2002 has set targets to step up the implementation of this commitment. Ecological Monitoring Methods for the Assessment of Pesticide Impact in the Tropics aims to assist developing countries build their capability in ecotoxicological monitoring. It harnesses the knowledge of pesticide impact and monitoring specialists to provide guidance on the measurement, analysis and interpretation of change in animal populations and key soil functions. This handbook will be of primary interest to those in government, development agencies, donors and non-governmental organizations who carry responsibility for the environment, agricultural and public health. Academics and students of ecotoxicology in developing countries should find both the specialist chapters and the field methodology useful.
