ABSTRACT Extensive applications of pesticides in agriculture and industry result in contamination of the natural environment, thus exerting a negative impact on organisms inhabiting various trophic levels, including humans. The article shows that microorganisms are the first to respond to those syn-thetic compounds deposited in the environment with changes in their both quantitative and qualitative composition. With-drawn from use, yet remaining in the environment, the pesti-cides pose a severe… Expand
Measuring the effects of pesticides on bacterial communities in soil: A critical review
Abstract Extensive application of industrially-produced pesticides in agriculture has resulted in contamination of soil ecosystems. A variety of both cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independentExpand
Specifics of pesticides effects on the phytopathogenic bacteria
Abstract The data concerning the effects of pesticides of different nature on the phytopathogenic bacteria was examined and summarized. Without extensive research on the mechanisms of interactionExpand
UPTAKE OF PHARMACEUTICALS INTO TERRESTRIAL ORGANISMS
TLDR
The results demonstrate the ability of plant species and earthworms to accumulate pharmaceuticals from soils with uptake apparently specific to both species, chemical and soil type. Expand
Potential environmental consequences of administration of ectoparasiticides to sheep.
TLDR
The impact of sheep ectoparasiticides is discussed in terms of their potential to enter into the environment, their toxicity and their impact on ecosystem functioning, as well as on work with foliar insecticides. Expand
Pesticides in Ichkeul Lake–Bizerta Lagoon Watershed in Tunisia: use, occurrence, and effects on bacteria and free-living marine nematodes
TLDR
The intensive use of pesticides in agriculture, through transfer to aquatic ecosystem, may disturb the benthic ecosystem functioning of the protected area and represent useful proxy to follow the ecosystem health and its capacity of resilience. Expand
Ecotoxicity of a novel biopesticide from Artemisia absinthium on non-target aquatic organisms.
TLDR
This study provides for the first time an exhaustive assessment of the environmental exposure of a plant-derived biopesticide and shows that these products may cause a broad range of toxicity on non-target aquatic organisms. Expand
Wildlife Ecotoxicology of Pesticides: Can We Track Effects to the Population Level and Beyond?
TLDR
In these times of regional and global species declines, the task of causally linking knowledge about the molecular actions of pesticides to their possible interference with biological processes is challenged in order to develop reliable predictions about the consequences of pesticide use, and misuse, in a rapidly changing world. Expand
Seasonal patterns of the bacterioplankton community composition in a lake threatened by a pesticide disposal site
TLDR
The study showed that the qualitative and quantitative changes in the bacterioplankton of the lake can be characterised by tendencies which are typical of a eutrophic water reservoir. Expand
Environmental and anthropogenic drivers of contaminants in agricultural watersheds with implications for land management.
TLDR
The information gained from this study will help prioritize ecologically relevant contaminant mixtures for monitoring and contributes to understanding the benefits of BMPs on improving surface water quality to better manage living resources in agricultural landscapes inside and outside the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Expand
Unravelling genotoxic effects of pesticides : in vitro and ex vivo assays as screening tools
Anthropogenic actions are one of the main sources of waterborne contaminants in the environment, often compromising the ecosystem and, consequently, inhabiting organisms. Real effects of theseExpand

Transformations of pesticides in soil environment - a review
Modern agriculture applies a wide variety of synthetically produced chemicals to control plant diseases. Although, pesticides are intended to protect crops, they belong to the most frequent factors,Expand
Toxicity of pesticides to aquatic microorganisms: a review.
TLDR
When attempting to predict the toxicity of pesticides in estuarine ecosystems, effects of pesticide mixtures and interactions with nutrients should be considered. Expand
Accumulation, metabolism, and effects of organochlorine insecticides on microorganisms.
TLDR
The effects of parathion on the growth of bacteria, fungi, and algae is shown to be dose dependent, with very low concentrations having no effect at all and higher concentrations drastically arresting the multiplication of the microorganisms. Expand
Simazine biodegradation in soil: analysis of bacterial community structure by in situ hybridization.
TLDR
Simazine degradation was affected by the presence of urea, in terms both of a smaller half-life (t(1/2)) and of a higher amount of desethyl-simazine formed, and the bacterial community structure was affected, showing that FISH is a valuable tool for determining the response of bacterial populations to different environmental conditions.

Abstract Two soil types, loamy sand and sandy soils, were treated with atrazine, pyrethrin and a mixture of metobromuron and metolachor for eight weeks in the laboratory to determine the effect ofExpand
Effects of the agricultural pesticides atrazine, deethylatrazine, endosulfan, and chlorpyrifos on an estuarine microbial food web
TLDR
Bacterial abundance and productivity increased, whereas phototrophic variables decreased, and agricultural pesticides were found to alter both functional and structural aspects of the estuarine microbial food web. Expand

Determination of organochlorine pesticides in agricultural soil with special reference to gamma-HCH degradation by Pseudomonas strains.
TLDR
Two Pseudomonas strains isolated from agricultural soil were found to possess gamma-hexachlorocyclohexane degrading ability when the isolates were grown in a mineral salt medium containing gamma-HCH as the sole source of carbon and a number of metabolites were produced and detected by the gas chromatography. Expand
Pesticide effects on bacterial diversity in agricultural soils – a review
TLDR
Future research on pesticide approval protocols should establish the relationships between mineralisation assays and new and rapid bacterial diversity profiling methods, and should include the possible ecological implications of altered bacterial diversity for soil fertility. Expand
