Research "Ecosystem Resilience"

Topics

We aim to understand if and how ecosystems can handle environmental stress with a focus on contaminants.

  • Global pesticide exposure assessment
  • Meta-analysis of environmental data
  • Contaminant effects in aquatic systems at various scales of complexity
  • Contaminant removal processes in constructed wetlands and vegetated ditches
  • Risk assessment and management strategies for agricultural chemicals and GMO
