Pesticides and salinisation, two stressors of freshwater ecosystems

  • This thesis examined two specific cases of point and diffuse pollution, pesticides and salinisation, which are two of the most concerning stressors of Germany’s freshwater bodies. The findings of this thesis were organized into three major components, of which the first component presents the contribution of WWTPs to pesticide toxicity (Chapter 2). The second component focuses on the current and future background salt ion concentrations under climate change with the absence of anthropogenic activities (Chapter 3). Finally, the third major component shows the response of invertebrate communities in terms of species turnover to levels of salinity change, considered as a proxy for human-driven salinisation (Chapter 4).
