Título Effects of agricultural pesticides on humans, animals and higher plants in developing countries
Información bibliográfica July/Aug. 1991, Vol.46, No.4, p.218-224. 52 ref.
Resumen Undesirable side effects that result from the indiscriminate use of agricultural pesticides in developing countries are widespread. This has captured the attention of health workers, governments, and environmental protection agencies. In fact, the potential health effects of long-term exposure to humans, animals, and higher plants are of great concern. This study examines the effects of agricultural pesticides on such living forms and explores modes of action, and presents strategies to minimize the deleterious effects of pesticides to living forms in developing countries.
