Pesticides and Wildlife

Edited by John J. Johnston

American Chemical Society

ACS Symposium Series

This is an examination of the effects of pesticide technology on various species of wildlife. Primary, secondary and tertiary exposure pathways are examined as well as forensic techniques for determining pesticide related mortality in wildlife. Case studies illustrating successful approaches and potential pitfalls in designing both laboratory and field studies are included. Lethal and non-lethal sampling techniques are interfaced with analytical chemistry instrumentation to provide scientifically sound data for quantifying pesticide residues in wildlife and approaches to data analysis and prediction of pesticide exposure risks are examined. The regulatory aspects of monitoring wildlife pesticide exposure and protecting wildlife from unintended exposure also receive treatment.
