Ecotoxicology

Jenna joined CEA in October 2016 as an Aquatic Ecotoxicologist to assist with the development of GLP outdoor mesocosm studies and higher-tier ecotoxicological studies, and has played an integral role in the development of the aquatic taxonomy services provided by CEA. Jenna is skilled in the identification of zooplankton, algae and macro-invertebrates, and maintains the macro-invertebrate reference collections. During her time at CEA, Jenna has worked with a variety of non-standard aquatic species and higher tier laboratory studies with novel test designs, as well as herbicide and insecticide mesocosm studies. Jenna has been involved in re-analysing historical ecotoxicology studies to calculate ECX and MDD values.
