Research field

Key-words: Ecotoxicity | Functional Biodiversity| Combined stressores | Toxicity and fate of Nanoparticles | Evaluation of the potential toxicity of real scenarios


Application of methodologies to legislation like REACH, the Water Framework Directive, and also to contaminated soils and waters.


Research in Environmental Toxicology | Environmental Risk Assessment Stressors effects on biodiversity.


Evaluation of water and soils contaminated with chemical mixtures in water an soils. Effects of chemicals combined wih natural stressors in water an soils.


Ecotoxicity, distribution and fate of nanoparticles in aquatic and edaphic systems.


The use of ecotoxicological bioassays (bateries) to evaluate the potential contamination of water and soils in real scenarios.


The use of terrestrial model ecosystems (ex. STEM, TME), as mesocosms/microcosms, to evaluate the potential toxicity of stressors.

Member of the Science for Environment Policy Advisory Group, by Directorate-General Environment, European Commission

The Science for Environment Policy Scientific Content Advisory Group review studies proposed for inclusion in the News Alert of the DG Environment, EC to assess their suitability for the service. The Group's expertise from across a range of policy and science themes helps ensure that high quality, policy relevant research is featured in the News Alert.

The first chater of this book included the participation of the CESAM researcher Susana Loureiro. This chapter is devoted to Exposure and covers several issues:



  • Emission scenarios.Interactions affecting availability and exposure to chemical mixtures

  • Availability

  • Chemical-chemical interactions in mixtures

  • Exposure scenarios and monitoring

  • Human exposure

  • Exposure in ecosystems

  • Monitoring of food chain transfer

  • Multi-media exposure scenarios

  • Effect directed assessment

Highlight NanoFATE- Nanoparticle Fate Assessment and Toxicity in the Environment

The NanoFATE project reached its end in the beginning of 2014! During 4 years we had the possibility to learn and be enthusiastic about the research that was being carried out, due to the interdisciplinarity of the project. The fate and toxicity of nanoparticles in the environment was the main and global aim of the project which involved a research team from the department of Biology, University of Aveiro.
