Ecophysiology of Pesticides Book Summary

Ecophysiology of Pesticides is the first comprehensive overview of the physical impact of this increasingly complex environmental challenge. Designed to offer the state of the art knowledge about the preferred themes supra vide, this book covers pesticide usage and its consequences on ecophysiology of plants. It includes the challenge of policy making in pesticide consumption and risk analysis through conventional and modern approaches of today's standard usage. This book summarizes research reports pertaining to physio-ecological effects of pesticides. It discusses environmental risks associated the over-utilization of pesticides as well as describing both long-term and chronic effects of pesticides and their consequence on soil, water and air continuum with special reference to dosage. The effects of pesticide usage on the micro-flora and rhizosphere are also addressed. A complete set of tables presents all data available on the intensification of pesticide stress on non-target organisms. This book is a valuable reference for plant ecologists, plant biochemists and chemists keen to study the pesticide consumption and its biochemical and physiological evaluation effects on plants. It is also be of immense help to university and college teachers and students of environmental biotechnology, environmental botany and plant ecophysiology
