The 33rd SETAC Europe annual meeting will take place from 1 – 4 May 2023 in Dublin, Ireland. gaiac will present its work in one talk and numerous posters.

One focus is the combination of experimental laboratory tests with dynamic numerical modelling. Both lethal and sub-lethal effects under the influence of variable environmental conditions such as temperature, organism density and feeding conditions are the focus of the laboratory tests. The physiological and ecotoxicological processes derived from laboratory tests are incorporated into individual-based DEB-TKTD modelling, which in turn provides the basis for population- and ecosystem-level models.

Here is an overview of our presentations at the SETAC meeting in Dublin:
