Research conducted under this theme examines the effects of pollutants on aquatic environments with a focus on the health and resilience of freshwater, coastal and estuarine ecosystems. This work aims to develop new tools for pollution monitoring and assessment, including genomics.
This area of research focusses on assessing the effects of pollutants and other stressors on macroinvertebrate communities in freshwater ecosystems.
We are developing genomics approaches using DNA-sequencing technologies to assess biodiversity in freshwater and marine environments.
This research aims to develop a better understanding of the resilience of coastal and estuarine ecosystems to multiple stressors.
