Abstract

In this review article we concentrate to review the impact of pesticides on birds from DDT to current fatality and diversity’s insurance value against changes in the productive environment. Books, journals, proceedings and newspapers were used. We assume that, the environment changes continuously due to both cyclical variations and stochastic chocks and that there can be external pressures on biodiversity. Misuse of pesticides is now widely recognized to threaten not only bird communities but human communities as well. As members of ecosystem, birds play many roles, including as predators, pollinators, scavengers seed dispersers, seed predators and ecosystem engineers. In modern sense birds can be used to provide early warning of environmental problems. The cost in biodiversity damages due to pesticide and climate change pressure on natural ecosystem interconnected with alarming species extinction-prone. Conserving species and ecosystems can be seen as a moral duty. This aligned both because of their intrinsic right to exist as part of our natural and cultural heritage. Nationally and globally, those who benefit from biodiversity conservation; including its dispersed ecosystem services and existence values, must be prepared to pay for it, rather than watch it vanish similar to the amount of the resources needed is such that the major source must be tax revenue, raised by governments. This should be better to prevent birds from avicides with pesticide use directly or indirectly. Nowadays this should be better to resolve by using biodiversity ecofriendly pesticides.
