environmental fate


Kindly note that this presentation of LEO has now been integrated with the InforMEA Portal.



The destiny of any chemical, biological substance or pollutant after release into the environment (Source: NAL). For example environmental fate provides an indication of what happens to a pesticide once it enters the environment, as well as likely exposure levels for non-target organisms. Evaluation of the data makes it possible to determine the behaviour of a pesticide in soil, water and air, the potential for its uptake by plants or animals, and the potential for bioaccumulation in organisms.
