  • When a new veterinary medicinal product is launched into widespread use, adverse drug reactions may become apparent. These may be seen in the treated animal patients, in exposed users or as adverse effects on the environment. Additionally, they may manifest as excess residues of the drug in food of animal origin. As a consequence, legislation and regulatory approaches have developed across the globe to address these issues and to ensure that the continued safety of these products can be monitored and, where necessary, that regulatory actions can be pursued to assuage any concerns.

  • Herbicides are much more than just weed killers. They may exhibit beneficial or adverse effects on other organisms. Given their toxicological, environmental but also agricultural relevance, herbicides are an interesting field of activity not only for scientists working in the field of agriculture. It seems that the investigation of herbicide-induced effects on weeds, crop plants, ecosystems, microorganisms, and higher organism requires a multidisciplinary approach. Some important aspects regarding the multisided impacts of herbicides on the living world are highlighted in this book.

  • Though alternative methods of controlling insects, rodents, insect pests, pathogens, microbes and weeds have been developed, pesticides could not be replaced. The prosperous role of pesticides in the management of insect pests and diseases is indisputable.

  • Car-sharing can be seen as an effective measure for reducing the burden of automobile traffic on the environment. The automobiles belonging to Swedish car-sharing organizations are often newer and have more satisfactory environmental and safety characteristics than Swedish cars in general. Studies have also shown that a member of an average car-sharing scheme drives only about two-thirds as much as earlier and that a shared car, through being used more effectively, takes the place of some five privately owned cars and as many parking spaces.

  • Construction activities have significant potential to have adverse environmental impacts. During this phase, often a large transient workforce is employed, workforce numbers tend to peak and material and equipment movements tend to be large. Impacts are typically related to land disturbance caused by earth- works, air emissions from dust, noise from equipment and construction activities and heavy volumes of traf- fic on access roads. In many cases, specialized third party companies and consultants conduct mine construction activities.

  • The use of pesticides in the United States has increased dramatically during the last several decades. Hundreds of different chemicals have been developed for use in agricultural and non-agricultural settings. Concerns about the potential adverse effects of pesticides on the environment and human health have spurred an enormous amount of research into their environmental behavior and fate. Much of this concern has focused on the potential for contamination of the hydrologic system, including surface waters.

  • Carmago et al. (1992) found that the rivers nearer industrial discharge point have adverse impact to the environment as well as to macrobenthic communities. Toxic contaminants from surface runoff, sewage discharges and industrial discharge have caused negative impacts towards the freshwater macrobenthic communities. The presence of substance chemical such as ammonia, chlorine, cyanide, metals, PCBs, pesticides and phenols would caused a decline pattern on the number of species and changes in the species composition.
