Abstract Both abiotic and biotic transformations of pesticides occur simultaneously in the environment. Although the dominance of abiotic transformations was demonstrated in some cases, it often was assumed that biotic transformations control the degradation of pesticides in natural systems. It is difficult to offer a general estimate of the relative importance of abiotic transformations under conditions that enable both biotic and abiotic conditions to occur. Considerable research effort is devoted to the development of predictive models for the fate of pesticides in the environment. Such models, if successful, will help make the application of pesticides more efficient and less environmentally hazardous. (Copyright (c) 1990 Soil Science Society of America.)
