Research on bisphenol A (BPA) as an environmental contaminant has now major regulatory implications toward the ecosystem health, and hence it is incumbent on scientists to do their research to the highest standards possible, in order that the most appropriate decisions are made to mitigate the impacts to aquatic wildlife. However, the contribution given so far appears rather fragmented. The present overview aims to collect available information on the effects of BPA on aquatic vertebrates and…

Effect of the plastic pollutant bisphenol A on the biology of aquatic organisms: A meta‐analysis
TLDR
Overall BPA exposure affected aquatic organisms negatively, and had negative effects on the cardiovascular system, development, growth and survival, and invertebrates and amphibians seem to be particularly affected.
Ecotoxicology of Environmental Pollutants
TLDR
This chapter brings introductory insights into the concepts of ecotoxicology and effects of chemicals in biological systems including the discussion of concentration–response relationships.
Bisphenol A Effects in Aqueous Environment on Lemna minor
The link between different plastic waste pollutants and their impact on the natural aquatic environment and food chain remains a constant and growing issue. Bisphenol A (BPA), a known endocrine
Soil ecotoxicity of seven endocrine‐disrupting chemicals: a review
Endocrine‐disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are widely used in manufacturing, and they enter the soil by direct and indirect pathways. Thus, there are concerns about their potential effects on soil
Toxicity of three emerging contaminants to non-target marine organisms
TLDR
The three tested compounds affected significantly the embryonic development of the sea urchin in all tested concentrations, including ecologically relevant concentrations, indicating the potential risk that these contaminants may present to the marine biota.

Ecotoxicogenomics to support ecological risk assessment: a case study with bisphenol A in fish.
TLDR
The results provide an effective case study for considering the potential application of ecotoxicogenomics to ecological risk assessments and provide novel comparative data regarding effects of BPA in fish.
A study of parabens and bisphenol A in surface water and fish brain tissue from the Greater Pittsburgh Area
TLDR
Estrogenic potential of extracts from fish brain tissue was tested via Bromodeoxyuridine MCF-7 analysis and paired with HPLC–MS to investigate the presence of xenoestrogens and correlation existed between estrogenicity and BPA.
