Abstract: The potential of a pesticide or biocide to cause adverse effects in the developing embryo or fetus is an important consideration in any health risk assessment for humans and wildlife. Such information is usually derived from experimental studies in which pregnant laboratory animals are exposed to various concentrations of compounds during critical stages of fetal development. The terms and diagnostic criteria used to describe fetal anomalies need to be consistent from one laboratory to another. Consequently, the DevTox Project has three main objectives: To harmonize the nomenclature used to describe developmental anomalies in laboratory animals, to assist in the visual recognition of developmental anomalies with the aid of photographs, and to provide a historical control database of developmental effects in laboratory animals.
