COST Action PERIAMAR notepad with informational brochure
January 15, 2024
As part of our COST Action PERIAMAR, we are active on various fronts, from conferences, meetings and scientific research and exchanges to the development of environmental risk assessment (ERA) of pesticides and the dissemination of information. Communication is an important aspect of our work.
We have recently produced a notepad with an information brochure for our stakeholders. It contains a short introduction to our action and important information about the occurrence of amphibians and reptiles in the agricultural landscape in Europe. We have also presented three common species in the European agricultural landscape and their vulnerability to pesticides: the common toad, the European pond turtle and the sand lizard.
We believe that the brochure will raise awareness of these overlooked organisms that provide important ecosystem services for our food production in Europe. It also promotes the main objective of our COST Action, which is to develop a guidance document for the protection of amphibians and reptiles in the risk assessment of pesticides in the EU.
The brochure has been translated into nine languages and you can download and share the PDF via the links below.
