2005 – 2009 – PBT - Physiologically-Based Toxicity responses integrating metal speciation predictions from a biotic ligand model (BLM). Programme - POCI/PPCDT to investigate and model the interactions between water chemistry and metals toxicity to freshwater organisms. The main objective of the study is to develop and validate a model to predict lethal and non-lethal toxicity of metals to freshwater species using characteristics of the water chemistry that are most determinant for them. http://www.cesam.ua.pt/index.php?menu=95&language=eng&tabela=projectosdetail&projectid=300
