TCS has deleterious effects on zebrafish adults and during early stages, (including embryotoxicity, hatching delay and alterations of biomarkers levels), according to a better understanding of the toxicity and mode of action of TCS.

This review presents an overview of the literature dealing with the fate and effects of metal‐based NPs in soil, and concludes that exposure characterization in ecotoxicological studies should obtain as much information as possible about dissolution, agglomeration, and aggregation processes.
Terrestrial avoidance behaviour tests as screening tool to assess soil contamination.
Biochemical responses of the marine mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis to petrochemical environmental contamination along the North-western coast of Portugal.
Beyond taxonomy: a review of macroinvertebrate trait‐based community descriptors as tools for freshwater biomonitoring
This review provides biologists with the conceptual underpinning for the use of species traits as community descriptors and for freshwater biomonitoring and management and expects that the functional trait approach will ultimately improve communication to managers and legislators of the importance of protecting freshwater ecosystem functions.

In this study, the acute and chronic effects of sodium molybdate and sodium dichromate to Daphnia magna Straus were evaluated and both toxicants inhibited AChE in vivo at concentrations under the respective 48-h LC(50) values.
