Overview

This book collects, for the first time, results from several hundred m onitoring studies and field experiments, ranging in scope from individ ual sites to the entire nation. Comprehensive tables provide concise s ummaries of study locations, pesticides analyzed, and study outcomes. Comprehensive and extensively illustrated, Pesticides in Stream Sedim ent and Aquatic Biota: Distribution, Trends, and Governing Factors eva luates the sources, environmental fate, geographic distribution, and l ong-term trends of pesticides in bed sediment and aquatic biota. The b ook focuses on organochlorine pesticides, but also assesses the potent ial for currently used pesticides to be found in bed sediment and aqua tic biota. Topics covered in depth include the effect of land use on p esticide occurrence, mechanisms of pesticide uptake and accumulation b y aquatic biota, and the environmental significance of observed levels of pesticides in stream sediment and aquatic biota.
