Pesticide Science and Biotechnology

R. Greenhalgh, T. R. Roberts

Blackwell Science,1987 [ISBN

This report on the Sixth International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry held August 10-17, 1986, in Ottawa, Canada, under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), constitutes a comprehensive review of the current understanding of this topical subject. The major theme of the conference was the use of biotechnology to provide new approaches to pest control and the published proceedings contains such subjects as synthesis, mode of action, analysis of residue and environmental factors. The book will therefore prove to be a useful reference for researchers and chemists in the agrochemical industry, pesticide science, weed research and biotechnology.
