A Multidisciplinary Approach to Evaluate the Effects of Contaminants of Emerging Concern on Natural Freshwater and Brackish Water Phytoplankton Communities

Results show that both chemicals have negative effects on natural phytoplankton communities with an alteration of the growth rate, species composition, and photosynthetic activity, however, the exposure to ZnO 10 mg/L acts as a growth stimulant for phy Topolanktonic communities.

Proteomic Applications in Aquatic Environment Studies

It is postulate that proteomics is an emerging, powerful, and integrated omics approach for aquatic environmental studies, which has contributed to the development of sustainable aquaculture, seafood safety, and high aquatic food production.

The growth, biochemical composition, and antioxidant response of Microcystis and Chlorella are influenced by Ibuprofen.

It is concluded that the increasing presence of IBU in aquatic ecosystems could significantly alter the population dynamics of the investigated and other phytoplankton species.

Phyto-fabrication, characterization, and biomedical activity of silver nanoparticles mediated from an epiphytic plant Luisia tenuifolia Blume

The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of an aqueous leaf extract of Luisia tenuifolia to synthesize silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and their antimicrobial and Aedes aegypti larvicidal



Photosynthetic sensitivity of phytoplankton to commonly used pharmaceuticals and its dependence on cellular phosphorus status

The results suggest that the sensitivity of algae to pharmaceuticals is (i) highly compound- and species-specific and (ii) dependent on the cellular P status.

Pharmaceuticals and personal care products alter growth and function in lentic biofilms

Environmental context Pharmaceuticals and personal care products are routinely found in waters discharged from treatment plants and in surrounding aquatic ecosystems. Despite the widespread

The influence of four pharmaceuticals on Chlorellapyrenoidosa culture

It is demonstrated that the usage of metabolomics analysis complemented with DCF could be an effective approach to understand the mechanism of molecular evolution in C. pyrenoidosa for microalgal biomass and bioenergy from wastewater in researches of biological resources.

Selected Pharmaceuticals in Different Aquatic Compartments: Part I—Source, Fate and Occurrence

Evidence is obtained that concentrations of pharmaceuticals are present, in decreasing order, in wastewater influents, wastewater effluents and surface waters, with values up to 14 mg L−1 for ibuprofen in WWIs.
