Environmental distribution of pesticides, their pathways of transfer and bioaccumulation, are known in many instances, yet their ultimate effects on organisms are relatively unknown. Importance of the impact of oil, heavy metals, and pesticides on ecosystems and on biological systems ranging from micro-organisms to fishes is emphasized in this introduction to a symposium on the 'Cycling of Pollutants.' The combined toxicities of methoxychlor, cadmium, and polychlorinated biphenyls were discussed at this session.
