On Wednesday, October 19th, 2016, Dr. Zmnako presented an academic seminar using a simple tool to detect the more subtle effects of mixed trace metal contamination in freshwater systems. He has studied metal exposure in metal-contaminated rivers in UK and Poland. They have bridged two traditionally well-established methodologies in order to study the dose-response relationship in field settings. The result of this work has been published in the reputable journal of Environmental Pollution with high impact factor.
There is a problem with extrapolating laboratory data into the field because experiments are controlled in the laboratory, but in real life, we do have many factors influencing the toxicity of toxicants, in this case, trace metals.
