SETAC Europe 14th Special Science Symposium: "Soil Biodiversity: What do we know and how to protect it from adverse effects of plant protection products and other chemicals?"

Date: 19 November 2019 - 20 November 2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium

At this Special Science Symposium, we will elaborate on (i) the ecological knowledge that might be useful to get a broader view on the assessment of soil eco(toxico)logical effects of chemical and non-chemical stressors, (ii) what ecological databases are available as reference for (large-scale) ecological assessments of effects, and (iii) what novel experimental and modelling tools are currently available for an effective environmental risk assessment.

The meeting will provide a platform for policy makers, risk assessors and scientists from government, industry and academia to obtain an overview of the latest insights, presented by key speakers from ecology and ecotoxicology, as well as modelling.
