Thousands of molecules influence the biological interactions in ecological systems. The overall objective of the course is that the students achieve understanding of the importance of bioactive molecules in agroecological interactions.  The course covers the bioactive compounds that play a role in the agroecological context – i.e. in the interaction between plants, animals, humans and the environment within agricultural systems. Theoretical lectures will give the fundament for practical lab-work on a) degradation, formation of metabolites and description of degradation kinetics b) effects of cattle’s intake of medicine on insects living on cattle manure c) use of plant root systems for uptake of pharmaceutical residues in the environment d) uptake and excretion in urine of bioactive compounds from rye bread e) toxicology testing in cell cultures f) effect of dietary phytochemicals on pesticide degradation in honeybees.
