    Joel R. Coats, et al. (editors)
    Resistance to conventional pesticides has been growing rapidly among all pests. Furthermore, there is increased public concern about the safety of conventional pesticides, and increased governmental restrictions have resulted in the need to identify new compounds that are safe and effective in controlling pests that are of concern to agriculture as well as to public and animal health. Biopesticides may aid in the control of such pests with fewer deleterious effects to the environment, people and animals.
    Joel R. Coats, et al. (editors)

    Low speed motor vehicle collisions are a common occurrence. The use of cellular phones, text messaging, and e-mailing while driving has only increased the frequency of low speed motor vehicle collisions. A motor vehicle collision where there is only minor damage to the vehicles may result in personal injury claims for substantial sums.

    10/11/2012 · Toxicogenomics
    In toxic tort litigation, a person is often claiming to have developed cancer or some other serious disease due to having been exposed to a particular substance. Determining if the exposure to the substance was the cause of the disease is often a central focus of the litigation.

    9/26/2012 · Medical
    It is a common error that an attorney retains the wrong type of expert to testify in a lawsuit. This error is particularly common when the expert is a medical specialist. It is widely believed that a medical doctor who specializes in a particular organ system is qualified to formulate opinions and testify as to all issues concerning that organ system.
