An Introduction to Pesticide Degradation by Aquatic Organisms

  • L. G. Hart
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 10)

Abstract

I have been asked to chair the third and final section of this symposium on Pesticides in Aquatic Environments. This section will be concerned with the ways and means by which aquatic organisms degrade, or perhaps more correctly, biotransform or metabolize pesticides in their environment.

Keywords
