Abstract

Metaldehyde has been used to eradicate plant pests such as golden apple snails and
slugs. This toxic pesticide has adverse effects on the environment including human health
and animals. The biodegradation process naturally reduces the toxicity of this harmful
pesticide, but in a long term. Many studies have been conducted in analysing the
biodegradation process in water and soil. In addition, various methods have been proposed
in detecting this pesticide, especially in the aquatic environment. Both biodegradation and
detection are essential fields in ensuring the sustainability of our environment. This paper
gives a brief idea on both concepts, and works as a platform for young researchers in the
environmental pollution.
