Using eDNA to understand environmental effects of multiple chemical pollutants in Chilean fresh water systems

Research
Sustainability and environment

What effects can be seen when the “whole” chemical exposure is assessed? In this seminar, predictions and eDNA from Chilean water pollution are put side by side.

THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL 10 FEB 2022.

In this presentation, Dr Pedro Inostroza assesses the complex mixture exposure (metals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and industrial chemicals) and predict its effects on different trophic levels (decomposers, primary producers, primary consumers, and secondary consumers) in an anthropogenically stressed Chilean basin.

He also applied environmental DNA (eDNA) to different environmental matrices (water, biofilms, and sediments) to study changes in the aquatic communities due to toxic chemical pressure.
