While the toxic effects of pesticides and legacy pollutants on human and environmental health have been studied for decades, there have been many recent advancements in the evaluation of these chemicals. The focus of this Special Issue will be on new methods for the identification, evaluation, and risk assessment of pesticides and legacy pollutants that impact on human and/or environmental health. Related topics could include, but are not limited to, novel techniques in exposure assessment; recently identified biomarkers; impacts of new pesticides; newly recognized chronic effects of pesticides or legacy pollutants; advances in risk assessment methods; fate and transport modelling in risk assessment; toxicity assessment of chemical mixtures; developments in analytical quantification. This Special Issue is open to research, case-studies, or review papers on the toxic effects of pesticides and legacy pollutants on human or environmental health.
