PREDICTING STRESSOR IMPACTS ACROSS LEVELS OF BIOLOGICAL ORGANIZATION

We are developing modeling approaches that mechanistically link the impacts of toxic chemicals and other stressors across levels of biological organization. Whereas it is increasingly feasible to generate huge amounts of data on the effects of chemicals at various levels of biological organization, the consequences of such effects for things we care about (e.g., persistence of populations, ecosystem service delivery) are rarely straightforward. This is where modeling can help.
