In this study, 17 organic pesticides and five industrial chemicals were examined in a terrestrial-aquatic model ecosystem in an effort to determine their persistence and accumulation by the organisms of this system. Several classes of pesticides are represented as one or more insecticides, herbicides, miticides or plasticizers were investigated in this system. The use of this system for examining uptake and persistence of widely used agricultural chemicals provides the necessary data for comparison of field data to provide a framework which can be used to assess the potential environmental impact of new pesticides before they are given a recommendation for generalized use. The data obtained from this work suggest that this model ecosystem is useful for the determination of the uptake and persistence of pesticides by the organisms. In general, it was found that most chemicals, with the exception of the persistent soil insecticide, dieldrin, underwent extensive degradation under the experimental conditions of the system.
