9781118852521: Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators

POLLINATORS PLAY A VITAL ROLE IN ECOSYSTEM HEALTH AS WELL AS BEING ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAINING FOOD SECURITY. WITH SIGNIFICANT DECLINES IN BOTH MANAGED AND WILD POLLINATOR POPULATIONS IN RECENT YEARS SCIENTISTS AND REGULATORS HAVE SOUGHT ANSWERS TO THE CAUSE OF THIS DECLINE AS WELL AS LOOKING TOWARD IMPLEMENTING STEPS TO ENSURE POLLINATOR POPULATIONS NOW AND IN THE FUTURE. PESTICIDE RISK ASSESSMENT FOR POLLINATORS FOCUSES ON THE ROLE PESTICIDES PLAY IN IMPACTING BEE POPULATIONS AND LOOKS TO DEVELOP TOOLS TO BETTER ASSESS THE RISKS THAT GO HAND IN HAND WITH THEIR USE.PESTICIDE RISK ASSESSMENT FOR POLLINATORS OPENS WITH TWO CHAPTERS THAT PROVIDE A SOUND FOUNDATION IN THE BIOLOGY OF BOTH APIS AND NON-APIS SPECIES OF POLLINATORS. CHAPTERS THEN MOVE TO COVERAGE OF RISK ASSESSMENT ANALYSES OF PESTICIDE USE, DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES, AND STATISTICAL AND MODELING TOOLS USEFUL IN ASSESSING THE IMPACTS OF PESTICIDE USE ON POLLINATOR POPULATIONS.SUMMARIZING THE CURRENT STATE OF THE SCIENCE SURROUNDING RISK ASSESSMENT FOR APIS AND NON-APIS SPECIES, PESTICIDE RISK ASSESSMENT FOR POLLINATORS IS A TIMELY WORK THAT WILL BE OF GREAT USE TO THE AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE COMMUNITIES.

Críticas:

"The debate concerning the effects of neonicotinoids on bees, though probably not the one about mobile phones, will no doubt continue for a long time so the publication of this excellent and comprehensive book is timely." ("Chemistry & Industry," 26 January 2015)

Reseña del editor:

Pollinators play a vital role in ecosystem health and are essential to ensuring food security. With declines in both managed and wild pollinator populations in recent years, scientists and regulators have sought answers to this problem and have explored implementing steps to protect pollinator populations now and for the future. Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators focuses on the role pesticides play in impacting bee populations and looks to develop a risk assessment process, along with the data to inform that process, to better assess the potential risks that can accompany the use of pesticide products.

Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators opens with two chapters that provide a biological background of both Apis and non-Apis species of pollinators. Chapters then present an overview of the general regulatory risk assessment process and decision-making processes. The book then discusses the core elements of a risk assessment, including exposure estimation, laboratory testing, and field testing. The book concludes with chapters on statistical and modeling tools, and proposed additional research that may be useful in developing the ability to assess the impacts of pesticide use on pollinator populations.

Summarizing the current state of the science surrounding risk assessment for Apis and non-Apis species, Pesticide Risk Assessment for Pollinators is a timely work that will be of great use to the environmental science and agricultural research communities. * Assesses pesticide risk to native and managed pollinators * Summarizes the state of the science in toxicity testing and risk assessment * Provides valuable biological overviews of both Apis and non-Apis pollinators * Develops a plausible overall risk assessment framework for regulatory decision making * Looks towards a globally harmonized approach for pollinator toxicity and risk assessment
