The Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity of Evolutionary Ecology at the University of Valencia (Spain) is offering a PhD position to study the resilience of aquatic populations and communities to chemical and environmental stressors in Mediterranean coastal wetlands.
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh and Carsten Brühl talk about a recent publication assessing the impact of fungicide-induced changes in food quality on the development and metamorphoses of the European common frog (Rana temopraria). This work is published open access in Ecology and Evolution. Relevant data is made available to the research community through dryad.
Blogs are effective outlets for science communication. We launched the EcotoxBlog in 2015 to foster communication among researchers, to share ecotoxicology news, and to create an opportunity for students to blog about their experiences. Five years later we have reached several milestones – a reason to celebrate!
In this post, Lara Petschick, Sebastian Stehle and Carsten Brühl share their experiences when visiting Costa Rica to establish a collaboration on Tropical Ecotoxicology with colleagues from the University Nacional in Heredia.
