Antimicrobial Movement from Agricultural Areas to the Environment: The Missing Link. A Role for Nuclear Techniques - FAO Land and Water Discussion Paper (Paperback)Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (author)
- Coming soon
The presence of antimicrobials in the environment can affect both biodiversity (since resistant organisms may have evolutionary advantages) and the food chain (e.g. through the presence of resistant genes in microorganisms used for food production or cross-contamination during processing). Based on case studies, this paper proposes alternative screening methods useful for environmental samples and surveillance approaches for planning such screening efforts.
