Abstract Occupational or environmental exposure to pesticides can be revealed either by the presence of a substance or its metabolites in urine, blood or some other easily sampled medium, or by the observation of a biochemical effect such as enzyme inhibition, reaction with proteins such as receptors or antibodies or mutation. A general review is followed by 17 separately authored papers under the headings "molecular characterization", "biomarker measurement methods" and "data analysis and application to risk assessment". Compounds and compound classes covered include nitriles, dioxins, organophosphorus insecticides, 2,5-hexanedione, p-nitrophenol, and chlorophenoxyacetic acid herbicides.
