Abstract

Numerous published studies and most authorisation procedures of parasiticidal products have shown that simple laboratory studies typically demonstrate a risk for dung fauna and/or soil dwelling invertebrates. Hence, there is a need for a more advanced standard test in order to evaluate risk under more realistic field conditions. In order to develop and validate such a field test, comparable investigations were conducted under varying conditions at Lethbridge (Canada), Montpellier (France), Zurich (Switzerland), and Wageningen (the Netherlands). Results of this project were published in 2016 in a series of articles in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry vol. 35(8):1914-1977. This poster presents some of the lessons learned and recommendations from a methodological point of view.
