1. Microplastics in the marine environment and the assessment of potential adverse effects of associated chemicals
Sammanfattning : During the last decade plastics have gained interest by scientists as emerging pollutants particularly in the marine environment due to their ubiquity and persistence. While several studies report the occurrence of microplastics in surface waters globally, there are no harmonized methods to sample and measure microplastics, and the knowledge of toxicological effects in the marine ecosystem is scarce.

3. Chlorinated Paraffins: improved understanding of their bioaccumulation and toxicity in Daphnia magna
Sammanfattning : Chlorinated paraffins (CPs) are industrial chemicals, mainly used as flame retardants, plasticizers and metal cutting fluids. Their production has reached historically high levels in the last decade, with an annual production exceeding one million tonnes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The understanding of effects of chemical exposure in nature is lagging behind. Predictions of harmful effects of chemicals on aquatic organisms rely mainly on ecotoxicity tests. LÄS MER
5. Integrative approaches in ecotoxicological testing: Implications for biomarker development and application
Sammanfattning : Ecotoxicology aims to understand toxic effects of chemicals in the environment. Effects can be observed at different levels of the biological organization, from molecular to ecosystem level. LÄS MER
