Sept. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- New York— Dr. Francisco Sánchez-Bayo, Centre for Ecotoxicology, University of Technology Sydney, Australia, will be the featured guest on a special series called “The Neonicotinoid View” hosted by June Stoyer and special co-host, Tom Theobald. The series is produced by The Organic View Radio Show ( and will be broadcast on September 19, 2012 at 12p.m. Eastern. The show will focus on his research on neonicotinoids entitled, “ImmuneSuppression by Neonicotinoid Insecticides at the Root of Global Wildlife Declines”. Dr Sánchez-Bayo is an ecotoxicologist and terrestrial ecologist. His main interest is risk assessment of pesticide contaminants on birds and aquatic communities, and he is currently focused on developing sampling devices for monitoring polar herbicides in environmental waters. He developed a novel and harmless technique to assess the exposure of live birds to pesticides, for which he received an IUPAC Rhone-Poulenc Environmental Award in 1998. He is particularly interested in modeling the time response of organisms to toxic chemicals, as a basis for improving the prediction of risk of toxicants on populations and communities of organisms.

Dr Sánchez-Bayo is currently Research Associate in the Centre for Ecotoxicology, based at the facilities of the Office of Environment & Heritage NSW in Lidcombe. He was Visiting Fellow at the University of New South Wales (1992), and worked on several post-doctoral positions at the University of Sydney (1994/2001) before taking a position as Assistant Professor at Chiba University (Japan) from 2002 to 2006.

He has taught ecotoxicology and environmental sciences to graduate and post-graduate students for several years in Japan and Australia. He has published 53 research articles in topics as diverse as bird ecology, woody weeds encroachment, ecotoxicology of pesticides and phyto-remediation of agrochemicals, and is author and editor of three books.

Neonicotoinds are defined, according to the EPA, as a class of insecticides with a common mode of action that affects the central nervous system of insects, causing paralysis and death. The new research, conducted by Rosemary Mason, Henk Tennekes, Francisco Sánchez-Bayo and Palle Uhd Jepsen contributes to further substantiate the impact of neonicotinoids on pollinators. Dr. Henk Tennekes discovered toxicological proof of the actions of neonicotiniods and upon realizing the dire consequences of environmental pollution with these systemic pesticides was morally compelled to write the best-selling book, Disaster in the making, to warn the general public about an impending environmental catastrophe. Dr. Francisco Sánchez-Bayo provided further ecotoxicological information which can be found in this new research.

“The scientific proof is surmounting and the regulatory agencies cannot continue to ignore the facts, especially with the global bee losses,” said June Stoyer, Executive Producer of the show.
