article i nfo Neonicotinoids, broad-spectrum systemic insecticides, are the fastest growing class of insecticides world- wide and are now registered for use on hundreds of field crops in over 120 different countries. The environ- mental profile of this class of pesticides indicate that they are persistent, have high leaching and runoff potential, and are highly toxic to a wide range of invertebrates. Therefore,neonicotinoids represent a signif- icant risk to surface waters and the diverse aquatic and terrestrial fauna that these ecosystems support. This review synthesizes the current state of knowledge on the reported concentrations of neonicotinoids in
