    QUESTION

    As an environmental scientist working as an environmental consultant, you have been hired by your state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to investigate the article “The Impact and Toxicity of Glyphosate and Glysophate-based Herbicides on Health and Immunity” on a well-known and routinely used type of herbicide and its effects on the environment and humans. You also must quantify the reliability of the DEQ’s own proposed biological safety and chemical safety control systems that they are considering implementing with use of this herbicide. Specifically, the DEQ has asked that you draft a review of only select portions of the paper as a case study, including the following in your review:
    short summary of the article’s abstract;
    identification of the types of species interactions that seem to be possible from the information on Figure 3 on p. 171 of the article;
    identification of what factors of secondary ecological succession, if any, may be expected from continued use of this herbicide for highway shoulder vegetation and weed control;
    identification of potential health effect hazards to both human populations and ecological populations from the information on Figure 2 on p. 170 of the article;
    identification of the potential health risks to both human populations and ecological populations from the information on Figure 3 on p. 171 of the article; and
    calculate system reliability for the DEQ’s own proposed biological control system and chemical control system from their provided variable values:
    Biological safety control system: Technology reliability =80%; Human reliability = 75%
    Chemical safety control system: Technology reliability = 90%; Human reliability = 85%.
    Your case study response must be at least two pages in length, not including the abstract, title page, or reference pages. You must at least use your textbook and the article as referenced sources. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including a title page, an abstract and in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. For organization, be sure to use Level 1 headings in your paper for each of the six bulleted sections.
