Impacts of pharmaceutical pollution on wildlife in a multi-stressor world

thesis
posted on 2023-03-08, 01:50 authored by LUCINDA CLARE AULSEBROOK
This thesis examines the ecological and evolutionary effects of pharmaceutical pollutants on wildlife, in combination with stressors such as temperature and infectious disease. It demonstrates that exposure to fluoxetine, a common antidepressant pollutant, can alter reproductive traits of wildlife in a temperature-dependent manner, shift the nature of host-parasite interactions and influence the spread of disease in a population.
