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
The Aquatic Biology Research LaboratoryDiliman - Philippines
The Aquatic Biology Research Laboratory focuses on direct biological assessment and monitoring using multiple biological communities in streams, rivers, lakes, ponds and other waterways. Current research projects include bioassessment of selected streams in the Energy Development Corporation’s geothermal production fields, assessment of water quality and the benthic communities in the Pantabangan reservoir and its tributaries, monitoring of stream macroinvertebrate responses to contrasting land use and seasonal stream flow in Silago, Leyte, and stream bioassessment of UP Diliman waterways.
