We investigated the combined effects of chronic pesticide exposure and predation on the life-history traits of Physa gyrina. Results show that atrazine and predation can impact snail immune function, reproduction, and survival. This work emphasizes the need to assess sublethal life-history responses to multiple stressors over biologically relevant timescales.
