Abstract This thesis aims to contribute to the discussion concerning whether micro- and mesocosm studies can serve as adequate models for robust risk assessment of pesticides. For this purpose, results from freshwater micro- and mesocosm experiments conducted under different experimental conditions are presented and compared. Case studies with the relatively well-studied insecticides chlorpyrifos (organophosphate) and lambda-cyhalothrin (synthetic pyrethroid) are used as examples of the variability typical in model ecosystem studies. These studies are placed in the context of other studies to gain insights into the consistency of the outcomes of micro- and mesocosm experiments performed with non-persistent insecticides which act upon the insect nervous system
