Occurrence and distribution of microplastics in the beach sediment of Anday Beach, West Papua (Indonesia)
In the last two decades, scientists have extensively studied microplastics (MPs), small plastic pieces less than five millimeters long, which can be harmful to our ocean and aquatic life. The MPs in
Ingestion and Depuration of Microplastics by a Planktivorous Coral Reef Fish, Pomacentrus amboinensis
Microplastics are ubiquitous contaminants in marine environments and organisms. Concerns about potential impacts on marine organisms are usually associated with uptake of microplastics, especially

TLDR
An increase in the number of studies to be realized in the southern hemisphere, future studies use the same methodology of digestion, the polymer identification of microplastics and samplings of the surrounding environment, enabling a greater comparison between studies.

TLDR
The results have provided information with reference to environmental concentrations of microplastics for fringe reef habitat close to urban areas, which can be applied in studies concerning ecotoxicity ofmicroplastics.
Feeding type and development drive the ingestion of microplastics by freshwater invertebrates
TLDR
It is demonstrated that freshwater invertebrates have the capacity to ingest microplastic items, however, the quantity of uptake depends on their feeding type and morphology as well as on the availability of microplastics.
