Abstract
In my dissertation, I asked the following questions: 1) what is the length of time that induced tolerance is retained and are there trade-offs to inducing increased tolerance, 2) what factors (i.e., frequency of exposure, timing of exposure) influence the induction and retention of induced tolerance to contaminants, 3) how do populations with no previous history of contaminant exposure induce adaptive responses to contaminants, and 4) how do aquatic communities respond to combinations of anthropogenic and natural stressors?
