Earthworms and humans in vitro: characterizing evolutionarily conserved stress and immune responses to silver nanoparticles.
Little is known about the potential threats of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) to ecosystem health, with no detailed report existing on the stress and immune responses of soil invertebrates. Here we useExpand

Limit-test toxicity screening of selected inorganic nanoparticles to the earthworm Eisenia fetida
The toxicity of a range of inorganic (Ag, Cu, Ni, Al2O3, SiO2, TiO2 and ZrO2) nanoparticles (NP) and their corresponding metal salt or bulk metal oxide were screened for toxicity toward the earthwormExpand

Predicted no effect concentration (PNEC) for triclosan to terrestrial species (invertebrates and plants).
Triclosan (TCS) is an antimicrobial agent which is used as a broad-spectrum bacteriostatic and found in personal care products, and due to this it is spread in the environment. Aquatic toxicityExpand

Biomarkers in earthworms.
Earthworms are believed to be so-called key species within ecosystems and are often exposed to a wide range of anthropogenic compounds released to the terrestrial environment. As a consequence, theyExpand

Effects of pesticides on soil invertebrates in laboratory studies: a review and analysis using species sensitivity distributions.
Species sensitivity distributions (SSD) and 5% hazardous concentrations (HC5) are distribution-based approaches for assessing environmental risks of pollutants. These methods have potential forExpand

Effects of eight polycyclic aromatic compounds on the survival and reproduction of the springtail Folsomia fimetaria L. (Collembola, isotomidae).
The effects of eight polycyclic aromatic compounds on the survival and reproduction of the collembolan Folsomia fimetaria L. were investigated in a well-characterized Danish agricultural soil. WithExpand
