Impacts of marine plastic on ecosystem services and economy: State of South African research
In addition to its direct impacts on marine ecology and biota, marine plastic debris can affect the delivery of ecosystem services, with resulting impacts on human well-being, society and the
The Marine Plastic Litter Issue: A Social-Economic Analysis
The issue of marine plastic litter pollution is multifaceted, cross-sectoral, and ongoing in the absence of appropriate management measures. This study analysed the issue of marine plastic litter
Impacts of Plastic Pollution on Ecosystem Services, Sustainable Development Goals, and Need to Focus on Circular Economy and Policy Interventions
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Plastic waste exposed to the environment creates problems and is of significant concern for all life forms. Plastic production
Presence of Microplastics and Organic Pollutants in Bangladesh's Freshwater Environment: A Review
Water pollution is an alarming concern in developing nations like Bangladesh, where the majority of people rely on water resources both directly and indirectly. Microplastics (MP) and organic
Ocean plastics: environmental implications and potential routes for mitigation – a perspective
This review provides a current summary of the major sources and distribution of ocean plastic contamination, their potential environmental effects, and prospects towards the mitigation of plastic
Marine debris: Evaluating sources, Impacts, and Practical solutions
Ocean preservation has been getting an indispensable goal for the international policy as human activities increasingly endanger the ocean ecosystem's integrity, which is usually summarized as “ocean
Cleaner seas: reducing marine pollution
TLDR
This review draws upon the expertise of 17 experts from the fields of social sciences, marine science, visual arts, and Traditional and First Nations Knowledge Holders to present two futures; the Business-As-Usual, based on current trends and observations of growing marine pollution, and a More Sustainable Future, which imagines what their ocean could look like if the authors implemented current knowledge and technologies.
Governance Strategies for Mitigating Microplastic Pollution in the Marine Environment: A Review
Threats emerging from microplastic pollution in the marine environment have received much global attention. This review assessed sources, fate, and impacts of microplastics in marine ecosystems and
Plastic Debris in the Marine Environment: History and Future Challenges
TLDR
The history and impact of plastics in the marine environment is examined, current solutions that aim to mitigate plastics accumulation in the environment and the future challenges of plastic as a material are discussed.

Impacts of Biodiversity Loss on Ocean Ecosystem Services
Human-dominated marine ecosystems are experiencing accelerating loss of populations and species, with largely unknown consequences. We analyzed local experiments, long-term regional time series, and
Interactions of microplastic debris throughout the marine ecosystem
TLDR
The concept of microplastic as a complex, dynamic mixture of polymers and additives, to which organic material and contaminants can successively bind to form an ‘ecocorona’, increasing the density and surface charge of particles and changing their bioavailability and toxicity is developed.
Biodiversity and human well-being: an essential link for sustainable development
TLDR
It is suggested that a consensus framework for sustainable development should include biodiversity explicitly as a suite of internal variables that both influence and are influenced by HWB, and can inadvertently lead to a ratcheting down of biodiversity by otherwise well-meaning policies.
Factors That Can Undermine the Psychological Benefits of Coastal Environments
TLDR
It was shown that litter can undermine the psychological benefits that the coast ordinarily provides, thus demonstrating that, in addition to environmental costs of marine litter, there are also costs to people.
Current Status and Future Prospects for the Assessment of Marine and Coastal Ecosystem Services: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The cataloging of MCES indicators and the integrated classification ofMCES provided in this paper establish a background that can facilitate the planning and integration of future assessments and establish a consistent structure and populate it with information able to support the implementation of biodiversity conservation policies.
Marine Anthropogenic Litter
This book describes how manmade litter, primarily plastic, has spread into the remotest parts of the oceans and covers all aspects of this pollution problem from the impacts on wildlife and human
