PhD-halftime seminar by Tove Florén

markmiljo-webb@slu.se Welcome to Tove Florén's PhD-halftime seminar. Tove Florén's work is focused on soil chemistry and nanoparticles. Her preliminary thesis title is "Imogolite-type nanoparticles

New insights into the legacy of mercury pollution in aquatic ecosystems

Contamination with mercury, a potent neurotoxin, is the single most common for European waters failing to the goals of the EU Water Framework Directive. The key to whether mercury can ever lose this

Lars Sonesten

lars.sonesten@slu.se I am a limnologist and ecotoxicologist working mainly with water chemistry and biology in inland waters. I am also working with the inputs of nutrients and hazardous substances


The increased presence of antimicrobial substances in water is a concern. The substances can be transformed over their life cycle through several different processes. SLU researchers have therefore

New SLU-professor wants to know if we should be concerned about organic micropollutants in drinking water

There are probably more than 100 000 organic micropollutants circulating in the aquatic environment. The newly appointed SLU professor in environmental organic chemistry, Lutz Ahrens, is dedicated to

I work as a chemist in the service facility, The Biogeochemical Analyses Laboratory (BAL). My role is as project coordinator and my aim is to help internal and external researchers with chemical

Fredrik Lidman

Nature is full of elements and they all have a story to tell. By studying and comparing elements with different biogeochemical properties and sources we cannot only learn more about how they behave

Fredrik Schlyter

My main interest is insect-plant relations: how insect find the best plant using host plant kairomones and non-host plant volatiles in mixed (i.e. natural) habitats. Applications in forestry incl
