This comprehensive volume provides a practical view of ecological modeling for the regulatory risk assessment of pesticides. Written from the perspective of field experts, including influential regulators, academics, and industry scientists, this book demonstrates how to use ecological modeling to investigate the importance and interaction of several factors surrounding pesticides and also how to effectively predict the effect such treatments will have on surrounding populations. This resource is a useful guide for regulatory authorities and manufacturers worldwide with an interest in using ecological models to assess the risk of pesticides as well as other plant and crop protection products.
