Sinopsis: This book compiles chapters developed from presentations at two symposia that addressed urban and agricultural pesticide uses and mitigation measures to prevent pesticide runoff and surface water contamination. The symposia were held at the 239th ACS International Meeting in the spring of 2010 in San Francisco with collaborative organizational efforts and presentations from industry, academia, government research organizations, and regulatory agencies. Selected chapters were also invited outside the symposia to more comprehensively cover the topic.
The first section of the book focuses on mitigation measures. Chapters describe field research conducted on vegetated ditches and buffer strips, constructed wetlands, settlement ponds, use of enzymes to degrade pesticides, application methods, and grower outreach. The second section focuses on modeling efforts in field crops, rice paddies, and urban turf testing various mitigation measures or comparing different models. The final section discusses some of the more problematic issues and challenges to implementing mitigation practices. It is the editors' expectation that the chapters included in this book will prove useful to both academics and practitioners, stimulate further research where needed, and encourage development and implementation of mitigation measures resulting in improvements in surface water quality.

Understanding Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Agricultural Management addresses global warming, one of the most pressing environmental concerns of our times. The agricultural sector is the largest source of global anthropogenic nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4), both of which are potent greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. The book provides a comprehensive overview of important issues related to greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural systems, including measurement of greenhouse gas emissions in agricultural fields, development of alternative management practices as mitigation measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and greenhouse gas accounting methodologies and modeling. Both crop and animal production systems are addressed by internationally acclaimed experts in the field. The diverse topics presented in the book will help the readers grasp quickly the fundamental as well as practical aspects of managing greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural systems. The book serves as a valuable source of information for researchers and environmental practitioners on the most updated knowledge of greenhouse gas emissions from field crops and livestock animals. It can also be used as reference material for an upper-level environmental or agricultural sciences course on global warming. Nº de ref. de la librería BTE9780841226562
