Multiple stressors and chemical mixtures: A joint challenge?

Time: 1/31/2018

Event type: Research profile seminar

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: 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.
