Abstract

The persistence of many chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides governs to a great extent the modes by which worldwide distribution may take place: major source and related distribution mechanisms are listed in Table 1. Investigation of this table shows that there exists a relatively complex source-sink distribution system by which many persistent organo-chlorine and other types of pesticides may be re-circulated in the natural environment.
