Effects Of Chemicals of Emerging Concern on Aquatic Ecosystems Under Climate Change

  • P.J. van den Brink

Freshwater ecosystems have been threatened by multiple stressors for decades. The increase of emerging contaminants like pesticides, pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals like PFAS will flow to the aquatic ecosystems through runoff and/or discharges by industry and sewage treatment plants. Meanwhile, the rising of temperature under climate change condition may influence the sensitivity and reproduction of aquatic invertebrates. This research will focus on the effects of emerging chemicals combined with temperature stress on populations of freshwater invertebrates under laboratory conditions. The result will be an important point to understand and forecast the response of chemical stress in a changing climate, which will benefit freshwater monitoring and management.
