The world's foremost source of reference to internationally published botanical pesticides research.

Botanical Pesticides Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research. Derived from the CAB Abstracts database, Botanical Pesticides Abstracts provides you with the latest information on antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, insecticidal, acaricidal, molluscicidal, nematicidal, antiparasitic (anthelmintic/antiprotozoal), and herbicidal plant compounds of medical, veterinary and agricultural importance, including their isolation, composition and activity. Coverage includes studies on neem.

Each week, Botanical Pesticides Abstracts delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about botanical pesticides.

Botanical Pesticides Abstracts includes a fully searchable backfile to 1984. With over 42,000 research summaries and over 3,700 records added to the database each year, Botanical Pesticides brings a wealth of current research to your fingertips!

Botanical Pesticides Abstracts is updated weekly online.

CAB Direct (CABI's own platform)

Acaricidal properties

Activity against:

Antiprotozoal properties

Activity against:

protozoa such as Plasmodium spp. (causing malaria), Leishmania spp. (causing leishmaniasis), Entamoeba histolytica (causing amoebiasis) and Trypanosoma spp. (causing trypanosomiasis)

 

Antiviral properties

Activity against:

  • - human and animal viruses, such as the herpes simplex viruses, hepatitis viruses, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • - plant viruses such as the tomato spotted wilt virus
Chemistry and formulations

Chemical structure of active plant extracts; commercial formulations such as Azatin and NeemAzal.

 

Effects on target and non-target organisms:
  • - Toxicity to and sublethal effects on all kinds of organisms, including target pests, disease vectors and diseases of man, domesticated animals and crops, and decay organisms of all kinds of stored animal or plant products
    - Unwanted side effects on man, crops and animals under protection, and other beneficial organisms, such as biological control agents
Herbicidal and algicidal properties, allelopathins

Activity against weeds of all kinds, including algae, parasitic and poisonous plants.

 

Insecticidal properties

Activity against:

  • - insects of significance to public health, such as cockroaches
  • - insect pests of crops and stored products including the vectors of plant diseases, such as aphids (Aphidoidea)
Isolation

Extraction and purification of constituents of all kinds of plants (such as Azadirachta indica (neem), Melia azedarach, Derris spp., Tanacetum cinerariifolium (pyrethrum), Schoenocaulon officinale, Ryania speciosa, Quassia spp.), including compounds such as azadirachtin, nimbin and other neem extracts, pyrethrins, rotenone and other rotenoids, quassin, ryanodine, dehdroryanodine and allelopathins.

 

Mode of action

Physiological and biochemical mechanisms of action on all kinds of organisms.

 

Molluscicidal properties

Activity against:

  • - snails (such asBiomphalaria, Bulinus, andLymnaea) which act as intermediate hosts of the organisms causing diseases such as schistosomiasis (Schistosoma spp.) and fascioliasis (Fasciolaspp.)
  • - slug and snail pests of crops
Practical application

Recommended use, dosages and efficiency in the field or surgery.

 

Residues and environmental effects

Residues in products and in the environment and their effects on the environment.
