Effects of pollutants on the environment

In Ecotoxicology we aim to understand and assess adverse effects of pollutants to aquatic and terrestrial organisms in the environment. This knowledge can be used to reduce or prevent a potential impact on the environment. To address these questions we perform in vivo experiments with living organisms as well as in vitro bioassays with critical environmental chemicals and mixtures of chemicals taken from the field or designed to monitor the field situation.
