  1. 1. Pesticide use in rice farming and its impacts on climbing perch (Anabas testudineus) in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Thanh Tam Nguyen; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mekong Delta; Rice field; Climbing perch; Insecticide; Chlorpyrifos ethyl; Fenobucarb; Mixture; Sequential applications; AChE; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The intensification of agricultural production in the Mekong Delta has faced serious challenges with respect to increased use of agrochemicals and especially pesticides. The indiscriminate use of pesticide could potentially impact on the long-term food production, environmental and human health in the delta. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ecological effects of pesticides in freshwater model ecosystems

    University dissertation from Lina Wendt-Rasch, Ecotoxicology, Ecologybuilding, Sölvegatan 37, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Lina Wendt-Rasch; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; Marinbiologi; Hydrobiology; community; zooplankton; algae; herbicide; insecticide; pesticide mixture; macrophytes; cypermethrin; metsulfuron-methyl; risk assessment; pesticides; microcosms; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis I have investigated the effects of pesticide exposure on the ecosystem level using various types of experimental ecosystems, i.e. microcosms. The direct effect of exposure to cyperemthrin, a pyretroid insecticide, was a rapid decrease of crustancean zooplankton in enclosures in a lake. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pressurized Fluid Extraction A Sustainable Technique with Added Values

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Monica Waldebäck; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytical chemistry; ASE; biomass; green chemistry; household waste; lipid; pesticide; PFE; pressurized fluid extraction; sediment; Analytisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Analytical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : The challenge for the future was defined by the Brundtland Commission (1987) and by the Rio Declaration (1992), in which the fundamental principles for achieving a sustainable development were provided. Sustainable chemistry can be defined as the contribution of chemistry to the implementation of the Rio Declaration. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mixture toxicity of pesticides and biological effects in agricultural streams

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jenny Rydh Stenström; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis was to examine pesticide mixture toxicity and its effects on aquatic biota in agricultural streams. This was accomplished by (1) calculating the ΣTUs for algae and Daphnia magna and a pesticide toxicity index (PTI) based on water quality standards (WQS) for long-term monitoring data (2002-2010), (2) by performing algal inhibition tests with Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata, using both collected in situ water samples and reconstituted water spiked with field-observed pesticide mixtures, and (3) by studying seasonal changes in macroinvertebrate and diatom communities during 2008 in four agricultural streams and determine a set of community-based metrics such as species richness, diversity, ASPT, SPEAR and IPS.

  5. 5. Risk assessment of chemical mixtures in the aquatic environment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Gustavsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chemical mixtures; Risk assessment; Pesticides; Industrial chemicals; REACH; Chemical monitoring;

    Abstract : The total chemical production within the European Union amounts to more than 300 million tonnes per year, of which 140 million tonnes are considered as hazardous to the environment. In order to ensure that these chemicals do not have harmful effects under normal use, likely environmental concentrations are compared to assumed environmentally safe concentration, and only if the resulting risk is deemed acceptable is the product or chemical allowed for use.
