A xenobiotic is a chemical substance that appears in a biological system where it is not naturally produced or expected to appear. Xenobiotics are used in agriculture (pesticides) and can appear as contaminants in agricultural systems (pharmacological compounds, hormone-like chemicals, heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants and environmentally harmful natural chemicals). Xenobiotics can be injurious to the environment and/or to biological organisms. The course is designed to give the students the tools for understanding and evaluating the fate of xenobiotics in agriculture, and the effect of unwanted residues of xenobiotics on diverse biological organisms (insects, plants, mammals).
