Will develop of chemical fate and ecological effect models, test in-situ tools for the monitoring of ecotoxicological effects, and creat a framework to understand the impact of climate change and chemical pollution on coastal wetland ecosystems.

OBJECTIVES

A

To provide current and future chemical risk scenarios for aquatic ecosystems based on the adaptation of fate and ecological models to Mediterranean conditions. (PI responsible: A. Rico)

A

To assess the resilience of aquatic communities to key chemical and climate-change related stressor combinations using microcosm experiments. (PI responsible: M. Vighi)

A

To test and further develop ecotoxicological tools for the in-situ monitoring of chemical effects at different levels of biological organization (i.e., biomarkers, in-situ cages, mesocosms) under Mediterranean conditions. (PI responsible: A. Rico)

A

To propose a coherent framework and specific measures to assess the resilience of aquatic ecosystems to chemical pollution in a climate change scenario. (PI responsible: A. Rico)
