Le mal du dehors

The Evil Outside

The impact of the environment on health


R. Slama

Edition 2017

Perchlorate, nonylphenol, ultraviolet rays, ozone, DDT, climate change ... This book provides for the first time a comprehensive overview of environmental pollutants and their effects on human health. Their visible health consequences, but also the unseen ones, are presented with great clarity. By providing specific examples of how the risks posed by some of these products are managed, it highlights the very different ways in which our society deals with health threats.

Crop Diversification

Crop Diversification

Removing the Agronomic and Economic Obstacles


A. Messéan, J. Meynard

Edition 2014

In a context where the resources continue to simplify and where the rotations are increasingly short, crop diversification seems essential to reduce the use of agricultural inputs, especially pesticides. This work analyses the main obstacles to crop diversification at the level of the agricultural industries and farms. It suggests ways of shaking up highly-specialised productive schemes and creating new ones.

Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?

Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?


S. Morand, C. Richomme, F. Moutou

Edition 2014

The current environmental crisis is accompanied by a crisis of the biodiversity and an epidemiological crisis marked by the emergence of new infectious diseases coming from wild and domestic animals. Could there be links between biodiversity and transmission of pathogens? Do biodiversity losses increase infectious health risks? Conversely, are wild animals and the biodiversity in the broadest sense influenced by the use of antibiotics? Are the services rendered by the ecosystems - pollination by bees, for example, - threatened by pesticides? Have wild animals become, reluctantly, a sentinel for the healthiness of our environment?

Our Bees in Danger

Our Bees in Danger


V. Albouy, Y. Le Conte

Edition 2014

What is the role of domestic and wild bees in the natural and farming environments? How do they live? What does bee-keeping mean today? What are the verifiable and verified facts of alarmist reports on the death of bees and how many are simply rumours or anecdotes? The authors answer these questions whilst taking stock of the reasons for bee mortality and possible solutions. This very readable book is targeting anyone sensitive to the crucial role of these incomparable pollinators and the repercussions on farming.

Marine Plankton and Pesticides: WhatLlinks?

Marine Plankton and Pesticides: WhatLlinks?


G. Arzul, F. Quiniou

Edition 2014

Marine plankton and the pesticides used on land can meet in coastal waters. Even when highly diluted, the treatment products and their residues conveyed by the runoff water sooner or later enter estuary and then coastal waters. The result is metabolic disturbances, breeding of tolerant species, changes in natural balances and even alteration of ecosystems.
