New Paper on Biocide Monitoring in Honduras

We are very happy to share the results of our long-term collaboration with Erika Tenorio and her students at the Panamerican Agricultural School, Zamorano, Honduras. Over the course of several years, we explored agricultural practices in Honduras and collected surface water samples to assess the impacts of agriculture-derived micropollutants in water resources of Honduras. We measured 30 biocides in at least one sample from across the sample set, and discovered associations between biocide occurrence or concentration and land-use and hydrological conditions.

This work was led by undergraduate researcher Anya Sherman and we are thrilled to publish this work in the H2Open Journal to provide free open access to anyone in the world!
