Overview

Description of PhD

Title: Effects of Time-Varying Exposure to Pesticides on Aquatic Invertebrates

Supervisor(s): Prof. Colin Brown

TAC: TBA

Funding: DEFRA

Description of Thesis

Ecotoxicological tests for effects of chemicals on aquatic organisms are generally undertaken with constant exposure concentrations, whereas concentrations of chemicals in natural waters vary greatly with time. There is an urgent need to determine how pattern of exposure influences chemical toxicity and to develop tools to bridge the gap to the real world. The overall aim of this project is to develop a modelling framework to predict acute effects on aquatic invertebrates from pulsed exposure to pesticides.
