Abstract

Given the essential role that primary producers play in aquatic ecosystems, it is imperative that the potential risk of pesticides to the structure and functioning of aquatic plants is adequately assessed. This book discusses the assessment of the risk of pesticides with herbicidal activity to aquatic macrophytes. By integrating regulatory and research information from specialists in the area of environmental regulations, this book provides a state-of-the-art guide to ecotoxicological risk assessment.
