Although concerns over the ecological impacts of pesticides gave
rise to the environmental movement of the late 1960s and 1970s,
since that time, pesticide use and its effects have been largely
ignored by the law and by legal scholars. This book addresses this
omission by providing a unique and serious treatment of the
significance of pesticide issues in environmental law and takes an
ecological perspective on the legal issues. Dealing with a wide
range of questions relating to pests and pesticides, the book
focuses primarily on agricultural pesticide use as the largest
contaminator in the US. It also examines the legacy of past
pesticide use and analyzes how recent developments in ecological
science can inform the law and increase our understanding of
ecology.Interdisciplinary in its approach, the book will be of
interest to academics, lawyers, scientists and environmental and
