Hayes Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology V1
The first volume of the Handbook provides a detailed, fully documented overview of the general principles of toxicology (dosage and other factors, metabolism, mechanisms of injury, and studies in humans), and summarizes what is known about human exposure to pesticides, the effects of pesticides on human populations, diagnosis and treatment of poisoning, prevention of injury, effects of pesticides on domestic animals, and effects on wildlife. The second and third volumes provide a similarly detailed overview of the different classes of pesticides, with a separate section devoted to each of 256 compounds that have been studied in humans. In addition to the generally interested who want to respond responsibly to pesticide issues, these volumes will be of value to scientific investigators, physicians in a variety of settings, government regulators, trial lawyers, farmers, pest control operators, and safety directors of related industries.
