Ecotoxicology

Research labs in Environmental Science are engaged in a wide variety of environmental and ecological toxicology projects, with a focus on aquatic environments and organisms (Aquatic Toxicology). Projects include the use of developmental, behavioral, molecular, reproductive, growth, and other endpoints to evaluate the toxicity of single compounds, complex chemical mixtures, and the interaction of natural and anthropogenic stressors. Research spans from molecular, in vitro, and in vivo, all the way up to communities and ecosystems.
