Journal Publishes Research Results by TCU Biology Professor, Matt Chumchal, Analyzing the Use of Riparian Spiders as Sentinels of Contaminants in Aquatic Ecosystems

February 2, 2022

Matt Chumchal, TCU professor of biology, along with eight coauthors, recently had a paper, "Use of Riparian Spiders as Sentinels of Persistent and Bioavailable Chemical Contaminants in Aquatic Ecosystems: A Review," published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (ET&C), an international scientific journal. The article reviews the use of riparian spiders as sentinels of environmental pollution, and suggests the development of national-scale programs to monitor chemical contaminants in aquatic ecosystems using spiders.
