There is a lack of data on the occurrence of pharmaceuticals in estuaries worldwide, with little understanding of their temporal and spatial variations globally. Ibuprofen, paracetamol, diclofenac, trimethoprim and citalopram were measured in twelve... Read More

Using mussel as a global bioindicator of coastal microplastic pollution (2019)
Journal Article
Li, J., Lusher, A. L., Rotchell, J. M., Deudero, S., Turra, A., Bråte, I. L. N., …Shi, H. (2019). Using mussel as a global bioindicator of coastal microplastic pollution. Environmental Pollution, 244, 522-533. doi:10.1016/j.envpol.2018.10.032

The ubiquity and high bioavailability of microplastics have an unknown risk on the marine environment. Bio-monitoring should be used to investigate biotic impacts of microplastic exposure. While many studies have used mussels as indicators for marine... Read More
