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.Continue reading
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh and Ralf Schulz talk about a new book on contaminants and ecological interfaces, edited by Johanna M Kraus, David M Walters (both USGS) and Marc. A Mills (US EPA).Continue reading
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!Continue reading
