The use of cholinesterase measurements in assessing the impacts of pesticides on terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates

Cholinesterase inhibiting insecticides Their impact on wildlife and the environment: 256-275
The use of cholinesterase measurements in assessing the impacts of pesticides on terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates
Pesticides and other cholinergic compounds inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in insects, mites, ticks, molluscs, earthworms and nematodes. However, most studies have been made in relation to pest control, but there is much less information on the use of AChE inhibition in assessing exposure of cholinergic compounds of non-target terrestrial or aquatic invertebrates. In aquatic invertebrates a reduction in AChE activity of 30-50% has been correlated with a toxic effect.
