The Xerces Society, an international non-profit that works to conserve invertebrates and their habitats, has launched a new website that hosts an extensive database of pesticide research. The Impacts of Pesticides on Invertebrates Database collects and disseminates summaries of research articles about pesticides that their impact on invertebrates, particularly pollinators, and the environment.
Articles can be searched by keyword, pesticide, or invertebrate species and include links to access the full text. Information is power, and we here at Hygeia Analytics salute the Society’s efforts to put this important research into the hands of scientists, consumers, and policy makers. See our section on Pollinator Health for additional resources, and check back often to both sites for updates.
