In this post, Carsten Brühl provides some background on a new program for insect conservation by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), where he chaired a workshop on pesticide reduction.
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) is hiring a PostDoc for modelling microplastic fate and transport in agricultural soils and surface waters withing its Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment located in Uppsala.
In this series of posts, Carsten Brühl reports about his current trip to Costa Rica. Part 5 is all about air sampling in a cloud forest to detect persistent pesticides travelling to remote areas.
We offer a Research Project Course (RPC) on amphibians and pesticides as part of the project “Amphibians in agricultural landscapes: chemical landscape fragmentation implemented in a habitat modelling approach”.
The Working Group “Quantitative Landscape Ecology” of the University of Koblenz-Landau offers a PhD position in the project “Response of freshwater invertebrates to natural environmental and agricultural stressor gradients across larger scales”.
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala offers a PhD position on fate and transport of microplastics in agricultural catchments within the Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment.
Within the project “Amphibians in agricultural landscapes: chemical landscape fragmentation implemented in a habitat modelling approach” five theses on amphibian ecology are available. Continue reading
In this post, Kathrin Theissinger presents her recently granted project on the development of landscape ecological models for the effects of chemicals on amphibians in which a 3-year PhD position is available.
In this post, Sebastian Stehle informs about their recently published paper “Agricultural insecticides threaten surface waters at the global scale”.
