Book chapter on Emerging lessons from ecosystems

It considers, like its predecessor, the issues of scientific evidence as the basis for action/inaction, the multiple, often complex factors and feedback loops in play, many of which are not fully understood, as well as the interfaces between science, policy and society and how all actors can move together towards necessary actions in the context of heightened systemic risks, and substantial unknowns.

  • Booster biocide antifoulants: is history repeating itself?
    Andrew R. G. Price and James W. Readman
  • Ethinyl oestradiol in the aquatic environment
