Current status of deepwater oil spill modelling in the Faroe-Shetland Channel, Northeast Atlantic, and future challenges
© 2017 As oil reserves in established basins become depleted, exploration and production moves towards relatively unexploited areas, such as deep waters off the continental shelf. The Faroe-Shetland Channel (FSC, NE Atlantic) ...
Nanomaterials in the Environment: Behavior, Fate, Bioavailability, and Effects-An Updated Review.
This review covers developments in studies of nanomaterials (NMs) in the environment, since the much-cited review of Klaine et al. (2008). It discusses novel insights on fate and behavior, metrology, transformations, ...
Comparative genomics of bdelloid rotifers: insights from desiccating and non-desiccating species
(Public Library of Science, 2018-04-24)
A single fungal MAP kinase controls plant cell-to-cell invasion by the rice blast fungus
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018-03-23)
When the rice blast fungus enters a rice cell, the plasma membrane stays intact, so the rice cell remains viable. The fungus then moves to adjacent cells via plasmodesmata, the plant’s intercellular channels. Sakulkoo et ...
Assessing the impact of benzo[a]pyrene with the in vitro fish gut model: An integrated approach for eco-genotoxicological studies.
In vitro models are emerging tools for reducing reliance on traditional toxicity tests, especially in areas where information is sparse. For studies of fish, this is especially important for extrahepatic organs, such as ...
Lethal trap created by adaptive evolutionary response to an exotic resource
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018-05-10)
An integrated approach to assess the impacts of zinc pyrithione at different levels of biological organization in marine mussels.
The mechanisms of sublethal toxicity of the antifouling biocide, zinc pyrithione (ZnPT), have not been well-studied. This investigation demonstrates that 14-d sublethal exposure to ZnPT (0.2 or 2 μM, alongside inorganic ...
