“The aim of Science is to discover and illuminate truth.”

Rachel Carson


Environmental Science encompasses the study of the relationships between the human being and the natural world. This includes a multidisciplinary approach to environmental problems and sustainable solutions based on the “One Health” concept. Azeral Environmental Sciences with its specialization in Ecology and Ecotoxicology identifies the best strategies for sustainable management and conservation of the environment.

  • Ecology

  • Ecotoxicology


This is the study of the distribution, abundance and diversity of living organisms and the relationships among them and with the environment at any scale or organizational level. Our services within this area include:

Environmental monitoring

We design and develop projects to evaluate and monitor environmental components, from abiotic elements to wildlife populations and communities (biodiversity).

Population and community ecology

We study the interactions among fauna, flora, and their environment which makes up an ecological community.

Ecosystem ecology

We study the physical, chemical and biological constituents of ecosystems to determine how matter and energy flow through them.

Diagnosis of ecosystem goods and services

We identify and evaluate the elements and services provided by ecosystems to support human society and our lifestyles.

Urban ecology

We analyze human activities in urban environments and ecological processes affected by these activities, to identify paths towards sustainability.

Landscape ecology

We assess the spatial and temporal changes in the ecological processes within a region or landscape, examining the effects of human activities on landscape heterogeneity.

Ecophysiology – Environmental physiology

We study how living organisms succeed of fail to adapt their physiology to environmental conditions in response to anthropogenic impacts.

Recreation ecology

We study the recreational carrying capacity of natural areas, to determine environmental impacts from recreational uses of natural areas.

Restoration ecology

We provide scientific support to environmental projects focused on the reclamation, remediation, rehabilitation and/or restoration of habitats and ecosystems that have been degraded, damaged or destroyed by human activities.


This is the study of i) adverse effects of chemicals, produced, concentrated or released through human activities, upon native fauna and flora and biological communities and ecosystems, as well as ii) the processes and factors affecting the presence, transport, transformation and breakdown of anthropogenic chemicals in the terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric environments. Our services within this area include:

Biomonitoring of populations, communities and ecosystems

We identify and evaluate chemicals in both biological samples (tissues, organs and non-invasive samples) and abiotic environmental matrices (soils, sediments, water and air).

Environmental Risk Assessments (ERAs)

We design studies to evaluate and/or predict the real and/or potential health effects of environmental contaminants on animal populations (both wildlife and domestic), vegetation and ecosystems.

Wildlife toxicology

We study the exposure to- and effects from environmental pollution on wildlife health.

Toxicología clínica

We evaluate and diagnose health problems caused by exposure to pollutants and poisons in both wildlife and domestic animal populations.

Food safety (Food toxicology)

We measure contaminating chemicals in human and animal food products and determine their suitability for consumption in accordance with the existing legislation.

Phytotoxicity studies and assays

We study the exposure of vegetation to chemical agents and effects on their growth and biological function.

Management of laboratory analyses

Azeral Environmental Sciences experts collaborate with quality assured Chemistry, Physiology, Ecotoxicology and Toxicology laboratories, to provide analytical support for biotic (biological samples) and abiotic (soil, air, water) samples. We specialize in assessing biomarkers of exposure, effects and susceptibility to chemical contaminants and other environmental and anthropogenic stressors.
