This paper describes the recent progress of in vivo biological screening for pesticides in China. According to the criteria, including the severity of damage caused by pests and the economic value of the crops, the investigated insects, pathogens, herbs and other species in the agricultural field were selected as the main screening targets for pesticides. Corresponding in vivo micro screening methods have been established and applied in the pesticide screening procedure, which has higher reproducibility, a shorter time and greater efficiency that off set the draw backs of conventional methods for pesticide screening. © 2009 Society of Chemical Industry.
