NERC seeks fresh approach to managing pollutants

The Natural Environment Research Council has launched a £6-million call for investigations into how chemical pollutants affect whole ecosystems rather than individual species.

In an announcement on 26 July, NERC said it expects the results to shape how chemical risk assessments are carried out in the future, with an increased focus on ecological relevance and sustainable ecosystems.
