Abstract/Summary

This is the second paper in a series to mark the research interests of former BB editor Stanley Cramp, and looks at the impact of pesticides on birds over the past 50 years or so. Cramp’s interest in this subject was related to the impact of organochlorine pesticides, and this paper summarises the way in which these pesticides affected both individuals and populations, and describes how patterns of recovery followed the control and withdrawal of the pesticides involved. Some more recent problems with pesticides are also described, including deliberate poisoning of raptors, incidental poisoning by rodenticides and problems relating from the use of veterinary products
