Spatial distribution and increase of microplastics over time in sediments of Buenaventura Bay, Colombian Pacific

The increase in production, consumption and inadequate disposition of plastics has generated an accumulation of these elements in marine ecosystems, which have become important microplastics sinks (<

Understanding microplastics in aquatic ecosystems – A mini review

Microplastic is defined as plastic debris with a size less than 5mm. It is characterized based on colour, shape, and polymer type. Microplastics have been discovered in a variety of aquatic

Ecotoxicological Assessment of Microplastics in Freshwater Sources—A Review

High living standards and a comfortable modern way of life are related to an increased usage of various plastic products, yielding eventually the generation of an increased amount of plastic debris

Detection and quantification of microplastics from cultured green mussel Perna viridis in Bacoor Bay, Cavite, Philippines

Microplastic contamination in the aquatic environment is a worldwide problem endangering aquatic organisms and human health. However, few reports were published in the Philippines especially in

A Critical Review on the Impacts of Nanoplastics and Microplastics on Aquatic and Terrestrial Photosynthetic Organisms.

The current knowledge on the fate and impacts of microplastics and nanoplastics in interaction with these organisms is reviewed, and adsorption of plastic particles is evidenced for each type of photosynthetic organism, and uptake and translocation in terrestrial plants is shown for nanoplastic, leading to concerns for trophic chain contamination.

Microplastics Risk into a Three-Link Food Chain Inside European Hake

Microplastics (MPs) are increasing in the marine environment as well as inside marine organisms, having an important effect on biological diversity. The trophic transfer of MPs was demonstrated under

Association of zoonotic protozoan parasites with microplastics in seawater and implications for human and wildlife health

Plastics are widely recognized as a pervasive marine pollutant. Microplastics have been garnering increasing attention due to reports documenting their ingestion by animals, including those intended

Occurrence, relative abundance and spatial distribution of microplastics and zooplankton NW of Sardinia in the Pelagos Sanctuary Protected Area, Mediterranean Sea

Findings suggest a potential risk of mesozooplankton and species preying on plankton mistaking microplastics for food in the marine food web, which may increase the likelihood of ingestion of plastics by marine organisms entering the food web.

Experimental Evaluation of Seaweeds as a Vector for Microplastics into Marine Food Webs.

The results provide the first evidence that seaweeds may represent an efficient pathway for microplastics from the water to marine benthic herbivores and the seaweed Fucus vesiculosus retains suspended microplastic on its surface.
