Pesticide Chemistry: Human Welfare and the Environment, Volume 2: Natural products covers the proceedings of the Fifth International Congress of Pesticide Chemistry, held at Kyoto International Conference Hall in Kyoto, Japan on August 29-September 4, 1982. The conference encompasses research topics in pesticide chemistry for increased agricultural production and for public health purposes.
This book is organized into four main parts that reflect the main topics of the conference. The opening part deals with the chemistry, biochemistry, and physiology of bioactive natural products. Other chapters consider the synthesis of pesticides and growth regulators; chemical structure and biological activity; biochemistry of pests and mode of action of pesticides; and mechanisms of resistance and phytotoxicity. The remaining chapters review the metabolism, toxicology, and degradation of pesticides and xenobiotics, as well as the methodologies of pesticide residue analysis.
This book will be of value to pesticide chemists, biochemists, physiologists, toxicologists, agriculturists, and public health workers.
