Contributer au mandat d'Environnement et Changement climatique Canada d'évaluer les impacts des contaminants aquatiques sur les écosystème dulcicoles

  • Évaluer la toxicité de contaminants prioritaires (ex., produits chimiques industriels, produits pharmaceutiques) chez les invertébrés d'eau douce
  • Évaluer les effets d'activités anthropogéniques (ex., sites contaminés, pesticides agricoles) in situ par encagement d'invertébrés aquatiques
  • Développer des approches métabolomiques afin d'obtenir plus d'information sur le mode d'action et ou les effets de contaminants
  • Développer des bioessais pour évaluer les effets sur la reproduction de gastropodes d'eau douce afin de générer des données écologiques pertinentes pour les évaluations du risque environnementales
