This handbook presents toxicology information which will be valuable to the Agency in researching toxic substances and pesticides, in aiding the rebuttable presumption against registration of pesticides process, in determining the toxicity of RPAR chemicals and their alternatives, in establishing generic standards for registering pesticides, in investigating accidents, and in reregistering pesticides. For the scientific and medical communities and for environmentalists it will serve as a guide on acute toxicity to animals and on potential hazards and pesticides in the environment. It reports: 12 years of data on acute oral LD50 dermal and ocular irritation tests; 9 years of aquatic LC50 tests; 8000 pesticide product analyses including many duplicates; 1000 aquatic test results; and Toxicology tables on 563 active ingredients. The handbook contains four parts and an appendix. Part I lists the toxicology tables; an Explanation of Tables precedes them on pages vii and viii. Part II presents an alphabetical arrangement of chemicals cited in the tables; Part III, a numerical arrangement of chemicals in the tables; and Part IV, a chemical code page index. The appendix describes test methods used to obtain results listed in the toxicology tables of Part I. Supplements of toxicology data from the Beltsville laboratory will be compiled periodically by the editor.
