Examining the effects of pesticides is difficult in regions such as Western Europe because of the relatively ubiquitous use of agrochemicals and the lack of unaffected areas. To study a wide gradient of agrochemical stress, we conducted a study in Central Romania, where traditional agriculture, which is assumed to use less agrochemicals, exists adjacent to intensive agriculture. We investigated potential effects of land use related stressors including pesticides on aquatic–terrestrial predator–p...
In the EU, the requirement for a two-tier-based environmental risk assessment for a veterinary medicinal product applies for marketing authorisations submitted since 1993. This article outlines the framework for conducting environmental risk assessments and provides information about the outcomes and type of substances that often require a higher tier assessment due to environmental concerns, and the tools available within the relevant regulation to reassess potential risks from products already...

The anti-diabetic pharmaceutical metformin is frequently analysed in the aquatic environment. Its impact on the fish microbiome is studied to get a deeper knowledge about the consequence of the metformin presence in river systems. Gut microbiome analyses were performed on larval brown trout with metformin including environmental concentrations. Therefore, the fish were exposed to metformin in concentrations of 0, 1, 10, 100, and 1000 µg/L. Especially, the lower metformin concentrations were meas...

The incidence of obesity has soared over the last several decades. There is mounting evidence suggesting that the increased presence of environmental endocrine disruptors (EEDs), including nonylphenol (NP), plays an important role in the incidence of lipid metabolism disorders. The aim of this work was to determine whether chronical exposure to NP could induce obesity and lipid metabolism disorders, both in vivo in Sprague–Dawley rats, and in vitro in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes. Forty rats (n = 10 per...

The aggravation of environmental problems has led companies to seek the development and commercialization of green products. Some companies mislead their stakeholders through a phenomenon called greenwashing. This paper aims to explore the phenomenon of greenwashing through a systematic literature review in search of its main concepts and typologies in the past 10 years. This research has followed the proceedings of a systematic review of the literature, based on the Preferred Reporting Items fo...

BACKGROUND: Although freshwater ecological restoration (FER) has undergone an immense development over the past two decades in China either in the number of projects or in the spatial scale of implementations, a dearth of clear and comprehensive trends in this field is still a particular concern. We conducted a literature survey through searching the database of Web of Science between 1997 and 2017 to investigate the driving force behind FER practice and to summarize the restoration outcomes. RE...

Drinking water production faces many different challenges with one of them being naturally produced cyanobacterial toxins. Since pollutants become more abundant and persistent today, conventional water treatment is often no longer sufficient to provide adequate removal. Among other emerging technologies, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) have a great potential to appropriately tackle this issue. This review addresses the economic and health risks posed by cyanotoxins and discusses their remova...

BACKGROUND: Phytoplankton diversity can be difficult to ascertain from morphological analyses, because of the existence of cryptic species and pico- and concealed phytoplankton. In-depth sequencing and metabarcoding can reveal microbial diversity, and identify novel diversity. However, there has been little comparison of metabarcoding and morphological datasets derived from the same samples, and metabarcoding studies covering total eukaryotic phytoplankton diversity are rare. In this study, the ...

The successful application of Fish plasma model (FPM) will greatly simplify the risk assessment of drugs. At present, the FPM has been applied to the risk assessment of several human drugs with high hydrophobicity. However, its applicability to a wide variety of compounds needs to be tested. Field work about distribution characteristics of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) in water and in fish plasma plays a key role in promoting the successful application of FPM. However, there are few repo...

The ubiquitous occurrence of microplastic particles in marine and aquatic ecosystems was intensively investigated in the past decade. However, we know less about the presence, fate, and input paths of microplastic in terrestrial ecosystems. A possible entry path for microplastic into terrestrial ecosystems is the agricultural application of sewage sludge and solid bio-waste as fertilizers. Microplastic contained in sewage sludge also includes polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which could origina...
