    The main objective of this PhD is to analyse the effects of environmentally relevant parameters on U toxicity. The main focus is to investigate the influence of the pH on U toxicity at different levels of biological complexity (from the individual to the subcellular and molecular level) in order to study the mechanisms that play an important role in the U-induced stress responses in plants. Since organisms are typically exposed to multiple stressors in the environment, the effects of U in combination with Cu were also investigated.
