According to IBGE (2010), the sugar cane is the first national agricultural product considering the amount produced, and it is the predominant crop in Sao Paulo state. The indiscriminate use of insecticides and other xenobiotic substances in this culture is an issue of great concern, since their effects are caused both financial and environmental losses, primarily related to non-target organisms. The combination of bioassays with chemical analysis performed with different test organisms allow to estimate the effects of pollutants on ecosystems and the various groups of organisms. The responses obtained with bio-indicators of environmental commitment serve as a warning of danger to the ecosystem may be suffering and can provide insight to decision-making and government environmental agencies. Thus, it is fully justified to carry out a comprehensive analysis to achieve an integrated view of the effects of the various products used in agriculture, particularly in the culture of sugar cane. To achieve these objectives will be utilized various biological models associated to physical-chemical analysis. This project, integrating different field studies and several related agencies to assess the eco-toxicology of the substances under test, will contribute significantly to new knowledge, providing support to strategize in the practice of pest control, the fitosanitary application and the residues of pesticides applied in agro-ecosystems. The results obtained with this project will also help in the formation of qualified human resources to analyze these correlations and to promote sustainable development. (AU)
