Development of a gene expression fish embryo test as an alternative for chronic fish tests: analysis of toxic effects using differential gene expression in the Danio rerio embryo test (Gene-DarT)
Acute and chronic fish tests are performed for the registration of chemicals, pesticides, biocides and pharmaceuticals. While the fish embryo test has been developed as an alternative to the acute fish test, so far no alternatives for chronic fish tests are available. Therefore, the fish embryo test with the zebrafish (Danio rerio) was extended by […]
Soil biota and biogeochemistry in the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil – evaluation of diversity and soil function under anthropogenic influence (SOLOBIOMA)
One of the main threats of global biodiversity is the wide destruction of tropical rain forests. However, the portion of secondary forests will continue to increase. For the tropics, data on the recovery of faunal communities in the course of forest regeneration and knowledge on the suitability of secondary forests as refugial areas for old-growth […]
Testing and optimisation of ecotoxicological test methods for routine use (ERNTE)
Despite efforts to include ecotoxicological tests as an integral components of the assessment of contaminated land, most decisions regarding soil remediation or natural attenuation monitoring and/or assessment still rely on the results of chemical residue analyses. The German Federal Soil Protection Act (1998) stipulated the protection of natural soil functions, including the function as habitat […]
