Was ist "Ecotoxicology"?
An increasing number of chemicals is used by society today, which are alsoreleased into the environment. Ecotoxicology is concerned with their potential impacts on the ecosystem. It aims to investigate and discover effects of chemicals on biological systems in order to develop methods for risk management, as well as to predict ecological consequences.
The international "Master of Science program in Ecotoxicology" integrates concepts of Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology and Ecology and includes Social Sciences and Economics as well. Due to its interdisciplinary and applied approach, the Program enables its graduates to analyze complex problems and to develop practical solutions.
As environmental problems reach far beyond national borders, an international approach is necessary and the situation in developing countries needs special solutions.
