To evaluate hazardous potential of contaminants in aquatic organisms, we conduct monitoring studies, develop new and improve existing bioassays, search for new sensitive biomarkers and build models to predict population responses. Integrating effects across levels of biological organization improves our understanding of response mechanisms and adaptation to toxic substances and other stressors, such as eutrophication, nutrient imbalances, hypoxia and climatic factors.
