How Laws to Protect Biodiversity Backfired on Scientists Trying to Save It - The Wire


The Wire
The legal fences around biodiversity research are so strong that it even thwarts basic research and international collaborations. The remedy, the signatories have argued, is a separate agreement to ensure fewer restrictions on academic research.

Ecotoxicology and Aquatic Biology Research Group

Exeter - United Kingdom

The Ecotoxicology and Aquatic Biology Research Group is a large, dynamic group studying the effects of environmental pollutants on aquatic wildlife and investigating the basic physiology of fish. Key areas of our ecotoxicology work are endocrine disruption and the biological effects of nanoparticles. Our work on pollutants span studies investigating the mechanisms of effect in individuals to population-level impacts. Long-term exposure effects to environmentally relevant concentrations of pollutants and mixture effects are key themes in this work and reproduction and reproductive behaviour are the major processes studied. A wide range of in vivo and in vitro techniques are employed, including gene arrays and DNA microsatellites. We have very extensive international collaborations with academic institutions, government bodies and industry and we are well funded from a wide range of organisations including, UK Research Councils, The European Union, The Environment Agency, DEFRA, and various industries.
