Atmospheric particulate matter from an industrial area as a source of metal nanoparticle contamination in aquatic ecosystems (2020)
Journal Article
Souza, I. D. C., Morozesk, M., Mansano, A. S., Mendes, V. A., Azevedo, V. C., Matsumoto, S. T., …Fernandes, M. N. (2021). Atmospheric particulate matter from an industrial area as a source of metal nanoparticle contamination in aquatic ecosystems. The Science of the total environment, 753, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.141976

Air pollution legislation and control worldwide is based on the size of particulate matter (PM) to evaluate the effects on environmental and human health, in which the small diameter particles are considered more dangerous than larger sizes. This stu... Read More about Atmospheric particulate matter from an industrial area as a source of metal nanoparticle contamination in aquatic ecosystems.

Debunking paradigms in estuarine fish species richness (2019)
Journal Article
Waugh, A., Elliott, M., & Franco, A. (2019). Debunking paradigms in estuarine fish species richness. Marine ecology progress series, 613, 125-138. https://doi.org/10.3354/meps12883

The comparison of species complements within and between habitats and geographical areas is a fundamental aspect of ecological assessments. However, many influences resulting from variability in sampling and data analysis often hinder the ability to... Read More about Debunking paradigms in estuarine fish species richness.

Macrotidal temperate estuaries are naturally highly dynamic ecosystems which support internationally important ecological populations and habitats. At the same time they have long been the sites of extensive urban, industrial, and agricultural develo... Read More about Temperate Estuaries: their ecology under future environmental changes.

Oil and gas infrastructure decommissioning in marine protected areas: System complexity, analysis and challenges (2018)
Journal Article
Burdon, D., Barnard, S., Boyes, S. J., & Elliott, M. (2018). Oil and gas infrastructure decommissioning in marine protected areas: System complexity, analysis and challenges. Marine pollution bulletin, 135, 739-758. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2018.07.077

Many offshore oil and gas production facilities are nearing the end of their operational life, with decommissioning now becoming a global challenge. The compatibility of decommissioning operations to marine protected areas (MPAs) creates further chal...

Towards better integration of environmental science in society: lessons from BONUS, the joint Baltic Sea environmental research and development programme (2017)
Journal Article
Snoeijs-Leijonmalm, P., Barnard, S., Elliott, M., Andrusaitis, A., Kononen, K., & Sirola, M. (2017). Towards better integration of environmental science in society: lessons from BONUS, the joint Baltic Sea environmental research and development programme. Environmental science & policy, 78, 193-209. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envsci.2017.10.004

Integration of environmental science in society is impeded by the large gap between science and policy that is characterised by weaknesses in societal relevance and dissemination of science and its practical implementation in policy. We analyse exper... Read More about Towards better integration of environmental science in society: lessons from BONUS, the joint Baltic Sea environmental research and development programme.
