German Environmental Specimen Bank at International Scientific Meetings: SETAC Europe und ESB Conference 2019
Following the motto One Environment. One Health. Sustainable Societies. and The past, present and future of Environmental Specimen Banks current results of the German Environmental Specimen Bank are presented
This year's SETAC Europe conference will take place from 26-30 May 2019 in Helsinki and from 3-5 June 2019 the Natural History Museum in Stockholm will host the 5th International Conference on Environmental Specimen Banks.
At both conferences the German Environmental Specimen Bank (ESB) will be represented with several contributions on current environmental research results.
At SETAC Europe, current results of the German ESB will be presented in four lectures:
- Determination of cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes in German wild fish via a GC-ICP-MS/MS method
- Conduction of a freshwater trophic magnification study based on a comprehensive literature evaluation
- Seasonal variability of metal and metalloid concentrations in blue mussels from the North and Baltic Seas
- Plasticizers in German rivers: DEHP and its emerging substitutes
In the future, the German ESB will provide data for the European project Life APEX. The Federal Environment Agency is a partner of this project and will present it in a lecture:
- APEX - Systematic use of contaminant data from apex predators and their prey in chemicals management
At the International Conference on Environmental Specimen Banks from 3 to 5 June 2019, the German ESB's standardised working methods and further findings will be presented:
- Quality assurance during sampling, sample preparation, biometric characterisation and transport in the German ESB
- How do age, size and trophic level of freshwater fish influence the tissue levels of priority substances?
- The use of German environmental ESB data in chemical management and monitoring
- Comprehensive mercury monitoring in aquatic and terrestrial samples from the German environmental specimen bank: matrix comparisons, spatial comparisons and temporal trends over three decades
- Retrospective investigation of cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes in archived German fish samples over two decades
