Ecotoxicological effects and accumulation of ciprofloxacin in Eichhornia crassipes under hydroponic conditions

It is demonstrated that E. crassipes could absorb and tolerate ciprofloxacin in a limited time-scale and imply an alternative solution for phytoremediation in water bodies contaminated with antibiotics.



Response of the freshwater Alga chlorella vulgaris to trichloroisocyanuric acid and ciprofloxacin.

The effects of trichloroisocyanuric acid (TCCA) and ciprofloxacin (CPFX) on the freshwater alga Chlorella vulgaris were assessed by toxicity bioassays and by the values of biomarkers in phase I and

Response of the cyanobacterium Microcystis flos-aquae to levofloxacin

The effects of levofloxacin (LEV) on Microcystis flos-aquae and its mechanism were investigated, indicating that high concentrations of LEV caused a severe oxidative stress onAlgal cells, resulting in a large number of reactive oxygen species produced in algal cells and thereby inhibiting the growth of algae.

Carbamazepine-mediated pro-oxidant effects on the unicellular marine algal species Dunaliella tertiolecta and the hemocytes of mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis

The significant relationships occurred among the tested biological parameters in both bioassays, further reinforce CBZ-mediated pro-oxidant effects on species, widely used in ecotoxicological and toxicological studies and provide a more comprehensive view on its environmental fate and ecot toxicological risk evaluation.
