We quantify the effects of toxicants in aquatic ecosystems. Our foundation is the integration of ecological- and ecotoxicological knowledge. In particular we consider impacts of toxicants at higher biological levels, from the individual up to the population and community in the field.
The results obtained are used to provide advice in the risk assessment of chemicals, the sustainable control of disease vectors, and landscape management for governmental and corporate institutions.
