Glossary of Terms Relating to Pesticides
The Glossary of Terms Relating to Pesticides presents definitions of more than 500 terms regularly used in relation to the chemistry, mode of action, and regulation and use of pesticides. A wide range of disciplines are involved in this field, and the glossary was developed to facilitate communication between researchers, government regulatory authorities, and chemists in associated professional areas. The range of terms covers pesticide residue analysis, sampling for analysis, good laboratory practices, metabolism, environmental fate, effects on ecosystems, computer simulation models, toxicology, and risk assessment. The number of important pesticide-related terms has more than doubled since 1996, when the first IUPAC glossary of this type was developed (Pure Appl. Chem., 68, pp. 1167-1193, 1996), which is an indication of the extent to which this field of study has become integrated with many other scientific and regulatory disciplines.
