The primary purpose of this book is to provide general information, health impact, toxicological information and regulatory status of endosulfan. Additionally, the residual level of endosulfan in multi-environmental matrices from South Asian countries is considered with an eco-toxicological and human health risk context. This book is intended for public health officials, physicians, toxicologists, and other interested individuals and groups with an overall perspective on the toxicology of endosulfan. The content of the book is divided into 8 chapters, each of which discusses various aspects of endosulfan together with residual data of endosulfan from South Asian countries.

The basic information about endosulfan is discussed in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 and 3 describe the residual contamination, eco-toxicological impacts and regulatory policy of endosulfan in India environment. Chapter 4 relates to the evaluation of endosulfan in human samples. Chapters 5 and 6 focus on the residual level and management of endosulfan in tropical countries including Sri Lanka and Pakistan. The remediation techniques available for reducing the impact of endosulfan is detailed in Chapter 7 and 8.
