RA 1270.P4 Special Poisons and Groups of Poisons. Pesticides
The Pesticide Poisoning Handbook, authored by Donald P. Morgan, is a
publication of the Florida Agricultural Information Retrieval System
(FAIRS), located at the University of Florida. The guide is designed to
provide information on how to distinguish, manage, and identify pesticide
poisoning in various forms. Access to the handbook occurs through its
table of contents, displayed in the site's main page.
Topics open for viewing include: (1) The Index to Pesticide Poisoning by
Symptoms and Signs; (2) rodenticides; (3) miscellaneous pesticides; (4)
fungicides; (5) organophosphates; (6) N-Methyl Carbamate insecticides; (7)
solid organochlorine insecticides; (8) insecticides of biological origin;
(9) other insecticides; (10) arsencial pesticides; (11) chlorophenoxy
herbicides; (12) nitrophenolic and nitrocresolic herbicides; (13)
pentachlorophenol; (14) paraquat and diquat; (15) other herbicides; (16)
fumigants; and (17) The Index of Chemical and Product Names. The
first link, the index for symptoms and signs of poisoning, opens to reveal a
table of contents, with focus on the body organ or system affected by the
poison. Users should select the topic of interest to view contents.
Likewise, the last link, to the index of chemical and product names, opens
to reveal an alphabetical index. Users select a category of interest to
see a display of chemical names for that letter. Selecting a name then
reveals the full entry for the chemical.
Within topics from the table of contents, selecting a pesticide or herbicide
form opens to reveal a sublevel listing of topics, which are forms,
instances, or manifestations of the poison. Selecting a topic from this
second listing then reveals the full record, which discusses: toxicology,
affects of the poison, absorption confirmation, products which contain the
poison, and instructions on how to manage the exposure to the poison. At the
bottom of the site are links to the divisions of the FAIRS WWW site: its
homepage, search engine, general information area, e-mail area, and survey
