dc.abstract.en Terrestrial organisms in the field often are exposed to a combination of stress factors of various origins, but little is known about interactions between different types of stressors. In the present study, we demonstrate the results of a study on interactions between Ni, chlorpyrifos (CPF), and temperature in the ground beetle, Pterostichus oblongopunctatus. The results revealed that all factors, and their interactions, influenced life-cycle parameters of the beetles (survival and reproduction). Significant three-factor interactions were found for effects on beetle survival, indicating that the combined negative effect of Ni and CPF was temperature dependent. In addition, significant effects of body mass were found: The survival of beetles treated with CPF and the reproduction of beetles exposed to Ni were positively correlated with body mass. All studied endpoints were affected by temperature. The results indicate that understanding interactions between temperature and toxicants, as well as among chemicals themselves, is essential for proper ecological risk assessment. pl
