Objectives of this research environment is to find out where and if toxic substances accumulate, and at what level they influence an organism.
It is important to understand toxicology both in the sense of ecology and how it will affect the individual organisms.
About the Toxicology Environment
In a changing climate and environment, we need to know more about how contaminants are distributed in ecosystem, how they accumulate in the food web, what kind of effects contaminants have on both individuals and populations, and how climate may affect all this. Our work include disciplines such as ecotoxicology, marine biology, food web ecology, population ecology, evolutionary life history and biogeochemistry. Ecosystems of interest are Polar Regions, large lakes and terrestrial sub-tropical forest, where we study both legacy and emerging contaminants.
