Working groups 1, 3 and 4 meeting, Hirschberg, Germany
July 07, 2022
Participants of three work groups (WG1, 3 and 4) met for a two-day working meeting in Hirschberg, Germany.
After a brief welcome and action overview from the action chair the morning was devoted to follow up on the progress of some projects relevant for the Action.
Here you can find presentations from projects TerAmphiTox, AMPHIDEB, PPP exposure of terrestrial stages of amphibians and possible management measures and Modelling pollution exposure, accumulation and effects in reptiles. More about European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC) can be found here. The work done by Rifcon on the telemetry of sand lizards was also captured in a short video that is available on our YouTube channel.
The afternoon was used to progress the article about ERA development for amphibians and reptiles, lead by Annette and Andreas. The last part of the meeting was used to revise questions from WG4 to WGs 1, 3 and 4 that were developed in the last WG4 meeting. Discussions were mainly focused on which questions are most pertinent to address and in what way, especially using tools that we can implement as part of PERIAMAR (STSM, meetings, etc.).
As the outcome, we planned the core topics to be addressed by short term scientific missions for the next period: November 2022-October 2023. Stay tuned for more information on the list of topics to apply by following our action on our webpage and Facebook profile.
