      The Gulf War has been the only conflict in the last half-century that featured the possible use of chemical-biological weapons against U.S. forces. Vulnerability to such an attack spurred the Department of Defense to action from the first hint of trouble in August through the end of Price: $ Chemical defense is perhaps one of the most widespread antipredator strategies among living organisms, from plants and bacteria to animals. Within the animal kingdom, defensive chemicals are found extensively in invertebrates (e.g., arthropods and molluscs, terrestrial and marine), but vertebrates also possess chemical defense strategies.

      Chemical/biological warfare is the term used to describe the use of chemical or biological agents as weapons to injure or kill humans, livestock, or plants. Chemical weapons are devices that use chemicals to inflict death or injury; biological weapons use pathogens or organisms that cause disease. Book: Introductory Biology (CK) The body’s first line of defense consists of different types of barriers that keep most pathogens out of the body. Pathogens are disease-causing agents, The first line of defense includes mechanical, chemical, and biological barriers. Review.
