Understanding species sensitivity to chemicals

  • 1 March, 2024
  • Wageningen University, Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management
  • P.J. van den Brink
  • I. RoessinkS.J. Van Den Berg

In this PhD project, the PhD student will co-develop an assessment framework for understanding the underlying mechanisms causing an adverse effect of chemicals and to identify the driving biochemical and biological traits making some species more sensitive than others to better understand and predict toxicity. This will be done by employing experimental and modelling approaches.
