Impacts of MiP on soil meso- and macro-fauna

Objectives:

This ESR project will evaluate the potential risks of MiP for soil fauna (macro- and meso-fauna) and their fate in agricultural systems. More specifically, we will quantify the effects of MiP on soil detritivores (geophagous worms) that ingest large amounts of soil and are hence, more prone to be affected by MiP in terms of feeding and burrowing activities.
