Recent studies have shown that simplistic measures of toxicity such as the LC50 do not provide enough information about the actual effects that may occur in pesticide-exposed populations over longer time periods than a few days. In this paper we discuss the use of demography and population modeling for estimation of pesticide effects on pest and beneficial species and argue that these new approaches are essential to further our understanding of the potential impacts that pesticides might have… CONTINUE READING
