    The book presents test methods on evaluation procedures for chemicals. Devices, and other techniques used to control aquatic and terrestrial vertebrates. The areas of major interest to the reader are methods of reducing potential hazards of pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides, and microbial agents; pesticide hazard to aquatic environments; research methodologies devised primarily for small and large mammals, and practically of developing valid test methods for field use in developing countries.
