Research interests

Key-words: Ecotoxicology / Terrestrial organisms / Aquatic organisms / Combined stressors / Mixture toxicity / Ecotoxicological Bioassays / Ecosytem Services / Ecological Risk Assessment / Multigenerational assays / Elutriates / oil sands risk assessment

The use of ecotoxicological tests to evaluate the potential contamination in soils and waters.

Effects of chemicals in organisms with parthenogenetic reproduction

Influence of natural and chemical stressors to terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates - Folsomia candida, Porcellionides pruinosos, Eisenia andrei, Physa acuta, Daphnia magna, Dugesia tigrina, Chironomus riparius, etc.

Assessment of the joint effects of natural and chemical stressors in terrestrial and aquatic
invertebrates.

Use of multigenerational assays to assess long term effects of contaminants on aquatic and terrestrial organisms.

Specific case scenario: Natural contamination in Oil sands area, induced by the input of bitumen into freshwater. Use of a battery of organisms to assess the ecotoxicological effects of bitumen in Rivers.
