AQUATIC ECOTOXICOLOGY AND IMMUNOTOXICOLOGY OF AQUATIC ORGANISMS IN KERGUELEN ISLANDS

Aquatic ecosystems in Kerguelen islands are a natural laboratory for the study of ecotoxicological effects related to Global Change. In this context, our objective is to contribute to: – a better understanding of the sensitivity of model organisms (Mytilidae / salmonidae) and the vulnerability of their populations to changes in environmental factors induced by global change; – set up an observatory in ecotoxicological risk assessment for freshwater-marine continuum in Kerguelen Islands.
