As a result, a very large number of requests has come to "Residue Reviews" to publish detailed digests of information on single pesticide chemicals so that the interested person in any part of the world could easily be brought up to date with all available important in formation without having to search probably several hundred literature sources, many of them obscure or simply not available except in very large libraries.

Type and scope of coverage in this series of single-pesticide volumes will oE course vary with available information. The coverage should be as com plete as possible, however, to be of maximum value to all interested indi vi duals, industries, research institutions, and governmental agencies con cerned with the continuing production of an adequately large yet safe food supply for the world.
