Swimming speed alteration of Artemia sp. and Brachionus plicatilis as a sub-lethal behavioural end-point for ecotoxicological surveys
In this study, we investigated the possibility to improve a new behavioural bioassay (Swimming Speed Alteration test—SSA test) using larvae of marine cyst-forming organisms: e.g. the brine shrimpExpand

Phaeobacter caeruleus sp. nov., a blue-coloured, colony-forming bacterium isolated from a marine electroactive biofilm.
Three isolates (LMG 24369(T), LMG 24370 and R-26156) obtained from a marine electroactive biofilm that was grown on a cathodically polarized electrode were investigated by using a polyphasicExpand

Swimming speed alteration of larvae of Balanus Amphitrite as a behavioural end-point for laboratory toxicological bioassays
In this study, we investigate the feasibility of developing a new behavioural toxicity bioassay (Swimming Speed Alteration test—SSA test) with larvae of Balanus amphitrite (Crustacea Cirripedia).Expand

Ruegeria scottomollicae sp. nov., isolated from a marine electroactive biofilm.
Seventy isolates were obtained from a marine electroactive biofilm that was generated on a cathodically polarized stainless steel electrode (Genoa, Italy). The genetic diversity was investigated byExpand

Environmental impact of antifouling technologies: state of the art and perspectives
1. Marine fouling affects most man-made surfaces temporarily or permanently immersed in the sea, resulting in significant (or substantial) economic costs. Intense research is aimed at preventing orExpand

Microplastics in the Arctic: A case study with sub-surface water and fish samples off Northeast Greenland.
The Arctic is a unique and fragile ecosystem that needs to be preserved and protected. Despite its remoteness, plastic pollution has been documented in this region. In the coming years, it is likelyExpand

Effects of nano carbon black and single-layer graphene oxide on settlement, survival and swimming behaviour of Amphibalanus amphitrite larvae
The effects of two carbon-based nanomaterials, nano-sized carbon black (nCB), and single-layer graphene oxide (GO) on settlement of Amphibalanus amphitrite (Cirripedia, Crustacea) cypris larvaeExpand

Imposex in pre-pollution times. Is TBT to blame?
More than 35 years ago, anomalous male traits in females of a gastropod species were reported as an expression of environmentally controlled sexual development (Blaber, 1970). This form ofExpand

Effects of selected metal oxide nanoparticles on Artemia salina larvae: evaluation of mortality and behavioural and biochemical responses
The aim was to investigate the toxicity of selected metal oxide nanoparticles (MO-NPs) on the brine shrimp Artemia salina, by evaluating mortality and behavioural and biochemical responses. LarvaeExpand
