Microplastics - an environmental threat?

Time: 12/7/2017 at 1:00 PM,

Event type: Research profile seminar, Lecture

Microplastics are a subject receiving much attention, both within the research field and within society. But what is the current state of knowledge concerning microplastics? What are their sources? How are they spread? Where do they go? What effects do they cause? Do they pose a threat? These questions will be discussed at a FRAM seminar with Bethanie Carney Almroth.

Lecturer: Bethanie Carney Almroth is a member of the Fish Ecotoxicology group at the department of Biological and Environmental Sciences. Her research has focused on oxidative stress, aquatic ecotoxicology and environmental pollution, using fish as models. She is currently leading several research projects aimed at defining the effects of microplastic pollution on fish, A sea of plastic, iMPACT, and Clean Coastline (Renkustlinje) funded by Formas and Interreg. These projects address the sources, spread, and effects of both the microparticles as well as associated chemicals on fish. An additional project will assess the risks associated with chemicals in plastic food packaging. She is a member of two strong research centers at GU - the FRAM center for future chemical risk assessment and management strategies, and CeCar, the centre for collective action research.

Multiple stressors and chemical mixtures: A joint challenge?

Time: 1/31/2018

Event type: Research profile seminar, Lecture

The current epoch is characterised by an unprecedented influence of human societies on ecosystems through multiple anthropogenic stressors. These stressors range from habitat degradation over invasive species to pollution including by toxicants. Professor Ralf B. Schäfer will first present recent studies on the co-occurrence of stressors and chemicals in the field and present two research avenues to deal with these phenomena: 1) Prioritisation of mixtures and stressors and 2) Advancement of predictive capabilities using theoretical models.

Lecturer: Lecturer: Professor Dr. Ralf B. Schäfer (Phd 2008), working group leader in Quantitative Landscape Ecology, is professor at the University Koblenz-Landau since 2010 in the Institute for Environmental Sciences. With other 130 staff members and 12 professors, the Institute for Environmental Sciences is one of the largest german University Institutes devoted to research in the Environmental Sciences. Ralfs main expertise is the exposure and effects of different environmental stressors, with a particular emphasis on organic toxicants, on freshwater invertebrates, microbes and ecosystem functions using field investigations and different statistical and spatial modelling techniques. He has published over 80 articles in international peer-reviewed journals including leading multidisciplinary journals.
