Title: Pesticide RIsk AssessMent for Amphibians and Reptiles
Duration: 2019 - 2023
Research groups: Ecotoxicology and microbial contamination
The PERIAMAR COST action aims to develop a strategy to coordinate efforts in order to address the research needs relative to pesticide risk assessment for amphibians and reptiles at the European level.
The action will integrate expertise provided by herpetologists, ecologists, toxicologists, environmental chemists and risk assessors trough several meetings and workshops and will provide opportunities for early researcher and senior researcher exchange across more than 20 institutions in Europe.
The action will stimulate networking and training in order to maximize the capacities of the scientific community to prevent amphibian and reptile declines because of environmental pollution and will contribute to the development of sustainable pesticide regulations and policies.
