This report on the Sixth International Congress
of Pesticide Chemistry held August 10-17, 1986, in Ottawa, Canada, under
the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry
(IUPAC), constitutes a comprehensive review of the current understanding
of this topical subject. The major theme of the conference was the use
of biotechnology to provide new approaches to pest control and the published
proceedings contains such subjects as synthesis, mode of action, analysis
of residue and environmental factors. The book will therefore prove
to be a useful reference for researchers and chemists in the agrochemical
industry, pesticide science, weed research and biotechnology.

bioactivity of natural products and prototypes; Chemistry and biological
