Contents Notes
"Chemical Pesticides: Mode of Action and Toxicology provides answers to questions such as why pesticides are toxic to the target organism and why they are toxic to some organisms and not others. This concise and timely introduction describes these compounds according to their mode of action at the cellular and biochemical level. It describes how various poisons interfere with biochemical processes in organisms. The book also explores how resistance to pesticides develops, how resistance can be used to illustrate the theory of evolution, and how it can be used to produce herbicide-resistant crop plants. Legal matters and potential environmental problems are also discussed." "By providing an integrated, yet simple, description of modern chemical pesticides, the author provides a relevant text for professionals and students in biological disciplines such as biochemistry, medicine, agriculture, and veterinary science."--BOOK JACKET.
