Quantifying ingested debris in marine megafauna: a review and recommendations for standardization
Standardized techniques, approaches and metrics for reporting debris ingestion that are applicable to most large marine vertebrates are discussed and proposed, with the aim of harmonizing the data that are available to facilitate large-scale comparisons and meta-analyses of plastic accumulation in a variety of taxa.
