Microplastic ingestion decreases energy reserves in marine worms
The indiscriminate disposal of plastic to the environment is of concern. Microscopic plastic litter (<5 mm diameter; 'microplastic') is increasing in abundance in the marine environment, originatingExpand
Bioaccumulation and biological effects of cigarette litter in marine worms
Marine debris is a global environmental issue. Smoked cigarette filters are the predominant coastal litter item; 4.5 trillion are littered annually, presenting a source of bioplastic microfibresExpand
Ecotoxicological assessment of nanoparticle-containing acrylic copolymer dispersions in fairy shrimp and zebrafish embryos
Nanoparticle-containing polymer dispersions are widely used, but little is known of their environmental effects. We studied the bioavailability, uptake, tissue localisation and effects ofExpand
Mitigating effect of organic matter on the in vivo toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles in the marine environment
Major constituents of seawater, i.e. ions and natural organic matter (NOM), can influence the environmental and toxicological behaviour of nanoparticles (NPs) in aquatic systems. ByExpand
Dissolution and bandgap paradigms for predicting the toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles in the marine environment: an in vivo study with oyster embryos
Abstract Dissolution and bandgap paradigms have been proposed for predicting the ability of metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) to induce oxidative stress in different in vitro and in vivo models. Here,Expand
Predicted and measured acute toxicity and developmental abnormalities in zebrafish embryos produced by exposure to individual aromatic acids.
Petroleum acids, often called 'Naphthenic Acids' (NA), enter the environment in complex mixtures from numerous sources. These include from Produced and Process-Affected waters discharged from someExpand
