Using Model Ecosystems to Predict the Environmental Behavior of Pesticides
Booth, Gary M.
American Biology Teacher, 39, 5, 275-278, May 77
Describes construction of a model ecosystem using a 10-gallon aquarium with a sand, water and air interface. Pesticides are placed on sorghum plants grown on the terrestrial portion.
