Abstract This report assesses what is known about the impact of dithiocarbamate pesticides and two of their most important metabolites on man, animals, plants, and the environment. Intended to serve as a general introduction to documented health and environmental risks, the report concentrates on those dithiocarbamates that are most used and best known in order to characterise these pesticides as a group. More than 250 published reports are critically assessed in terms of methodological design as well as findings.
