ECOTOX, the INRA's network of ecotoxicologists


The fifth meeting of INRA’s national network of ecotoxicologists took place on 25 to 27 November 2014 in Biarritz, France. The main aim of the meeting was to bring together ecotoxicologists from INRA and associated partners, providing them ample opportunity to share and discuss their latest scientific results as well as the national policy of research in ecotoxicology and to precise perspectives for the network.

This meeting benefited from funding from two of INRA's Scientific Divisions: “Forest, Grassland and Freshwater Ecology” and “Environment and Agronomy”, as well as the “Sustainable Management of Crop Health” metaprogramme and the EcoBASC Network of the “Biodiversity, Agroecosystems, Society, Climate” Laboratory of Excellence. This LabEx is part of the French Investments for the Future (Investissements dAvenir) programme initiated by the French National Research Agency (ANR) (LabEx BASC, ANR-11-LABX-0034).

We would like to thank our colleagues who were particularly closely involved in organising the meeting: Anne-Marie Bouchon and Patricia Braconnier (ISPA Bordeaux), as well as Céline Duisit (PESSAC-ECOSYS Versailles) for her work on publishing, logistics and secretariat, and Christine Sireyjol (PESSAC-ECOSYS Versailles) for website and documentary watch development.

Compliance with ethical standards
