Aldicarb / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization ; first draft prepared by J. Risher and H. Choudhury
World Health Organization; International Programme on Chemical Safety ( 1991 )
Abstract

Evaluates risks to human health and the environment posed by aldicarb, a carbamate insecticide applied, exclusively in granular form and below the soil surface, to control certain insects, mites, and nematodes. Aldicarb has been approved for use on a wide range of crops; ingestion of contaminated food is the main route of exposure for the general population. Because aldicarb is applied to the subsoil, the evaluation of environmental fate concentrates on mobility and persistence in soil and on the circumstances under which aldicarb may contaminate shallow wells. The rapid uptake of aldicarb and its residues by food crops is another consistently reported finding. Studies in experimental animals point to the efficient absorption of aldicarb from the gastrointestinal tract and its wide distribution to all tissues, including the developing fetus. Concerning risks to human health, the book draws on reports of several widespread outbreaks of aldicarb poisoning following the ingestion of contaminated cucumbers, melons, watermelons, and drinking water. In each of these cases, poisoning resulted from the use of aldicarb on a non-approved crop. The book concludes that aldicarb is one of the most potent and acutely toxic pesticides in use, that most cases of poisoning and toxicity arise from the use of aldicarb on non-approved crops or the failure to follow recommended safety precautions, that the symptoms of poisoning are transient and rarely fatal, and that aldicarb poses no risk to the general population when applied at recommended rates and using current techniques. The need to use protective equipment during manufacture, formulation, and application is stressed

Abstract

Aldrin and dieldrin are organochlorine pesticides manufactured commercially since 1950 and once widely used to control many soil pests of agricultural importance. Dieldrin was also used in public health to control the vectors of some tropical diseases. Wide use was halted in the early 1970s, when evidence of environmental and health hazards prompted many governments to ban or severely restrict the use f these chemicals for agricultural purposes. Dieldrin continues to be used to protect wood and wood structures against attack by termites and wood borers, for the moth-proofing of textiles, and for locust control. This book reviews the vast body of data on aldrin and dieldrin in an effort to determine whether the continuing, though restricted, use of these chemicals poses a hazard to health or the environment. An effort is also made to determine whether previously high levels of use left persistent risks. Well over 900 studies are examined in order to unravel the complexities of the behaviour of these chemicals, resolve inconsistencies in reported results, and issue clear guidelines for the protection of human health and the environment. In view of the previous large-scale application to agricultural soil, almost a third of the book is devoted to the behaviour of these chemicals in the environment, their degradation, bioaccumulation, persistence over years, migration into foods, and presence in the bodies of infants, adults, and various wildlife and domestic species. Other sections consider effects on aquatic and terrestrial organisms and evaluate the extensive body of data from toxicological, clinical, and epidemiological investigations into the short- and long-term health effects of these highly toxic chemicals. On the basis of this evaluation, the report concludes that the presence of dieldrin in low concentrations in the human body and mothers milk, largely the result of dietary exposure, constitutes no health risk to the general population. The book further concludes that, in the interest of environmental protection, large-scale use of aldrin and dieldrin must not be resumed. Continued use for termite control of premises is regarded as acceptable provided these chemicals are handled and applied according to strict safety standards

[Algae in the dam reservoirs used for drinking-water production in Morocco]
Bourchich, L.; Foutlane, A.; Echihabi, L. ( 2000 )
Abstract

As part of the study of water quality of dam reservoirs used for drinking-water production, the Water Quality Laboratory of the National Office for Drinking Water in Morocco prepared a micrographic atlas of the main species of planktonic algae found in 22 reservoirs over a period of 25 years. The atlas includes 321 micrographs representing 156 taxons with an indication of the sample location and an enlargement ratio for each micrograph. In some cases, information is also provided on algae associations, algal counts and monthly occurrence
