About this book

This set is a comprehensive, two-volume reference guide to the properties, effects and regulation of pesticides that provides the latest and most complete information to researchers investigating the environmental, agricultural, veterinary and human-health impacts of pesticide use.

These are the two volumes you need to have ready access to if you have any association with pesticide actions, use, or environmental/biological effectiveness. ...it will remain a standard for many years. VET HUMAN TOXICOLOGY (August 2002) "I have found that the Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology has been a great asset...it is a revision that every toxicologist should include in recommendations to their institutional library. As a comprehensive work, it stands above others in the field." John Edwards for THE BRITISH TOXICOLOGY SOCIETY NEWSLETTER (Spring 2002) "This is highly recommended, not only for professional toxicologists working with pesticides, but also as a notable source of information on mechanistic toxicology and risk assessment." Philip Harvey for THE BRITISH TOXICOLOGY SOCIETY NEWSLETTER (Spring 2002)
