Project: Evaluating the Cumulative Toxicity and mechanism of action of Neonicotinoid Insecticide Mixtures to the Aquatic InvertebrateĀ Chironomus dilutus

Co-supervisor: Dr. Karsten Liber

 

Erin is studying the effects of neonicotinoid insecticide mixtures on non-target aquatic insects (Chironomus dilutus). With research spanning from the laboratory to the field, her project aims to evaluate the cumulative effects of neonicotinoids and their mixtures on aquatic insects to help characterize the risks these compounds pose to aquatic environments.
