The degradation and toxicity of herbicides in the tropical marine environment.
The aims of the project are to determine:
- Aerobic degradation of select herbicides utilising incubation experiments at varying temperature and light regimes;
- Aerobic degradation and fate of select herbicides using outdoor mesocosm experiments;
- Toxicity and sub-lethal stress response of marine microalgae to select herbicides; and
- Fate of selected herbicides in the marine environment.
