Abstract Hypoxia in aquatic ecosystems is often a result of anthropogenic activities, such as increased nutrient loading, originating from agriculture or urbanization, as well as global warming. Aquatic invertebrates are especially important in ecosystems due to their central role in secondary production and in dynamics of food webs. To better understand impacts of oxygen availability on key physiological processes in invertebrates, we conducted a literature search and synthesized the findings o...

Abstract Field monitoring of groundwater contamination plumes is an important component of managing risks for downgradient receptors and remedial strategies that rely on monitored natural attenuation. Collection of groundwater quality data can however take a considerable effort and be associated with high cost. Here, we investigated the relative merits of analyzing groundwater quality data using spatial compared to spatiotemporal statistical modelling and assessed the accuracy of both methods an...

Abstract Immobilizing La(OH) 3 nanoparticles (NPs) to porous hosts has been widely applied to inhibiting their inherent aggregation as well as the subsequent low utilization efficiency of La. In this study, a series of rice husk biochars (RHBCs) with high mesoporous rates were prepared and the effects of host pore structure and point of zero charge (pH pzc ) on phosphate adsorption by La-modified RHBCs was particularly focused. Characterization results confirmed that La(OH) 3 NPs were both confi...

Abstract There is limited knowledge regarding seawater intrusion on Hg distribution in monsoon fed tropical estuarine systems during dry season (February to May). This study examined the influence of resuspension of estuarine sediment and intrusion of Hg bound SPM (Hg SPM ) (by the tide) from the outside of an estuary in controlling distribution, mobility, and bioavailability of Hg within the estuarine systems during the dry season. This investigation was carried out in the Mandovi estuary, a mo...

Abstract The successful treatment of infectious diseases heavily relies on the therapeutic usage of antibiotics. However, the high use of antibiotics in humans and animals leads to increasing pressure on bacterial populations in favour of resistant phenotypes. Antibiotics reach the environment from a variety of emission sources and are being detected at relatively low concentrations. Given the possibility of selective pressure to occur at sub-inhibitory concentrations, the ecological impact of e...

Abstract Rapid urbanisation and industrial growth in South Africa increases the need for proactive allocation of freshwater resources on a regional scale. A nine-step method is described that sets long-term targets for water resource condition and future use with a focus on estuary water quantity and quality requirements. The approach specifically focuses on the environmental flow allocation to estuaries, nested within a broader, regional (multi-catchment and multi-estuary) water resource landsc...

Abstract Deep-sea mining has gained international interest to provide materials for the worldwide industry. European oceans and, particularly, the Portuguese Exclusive Economic Zone present a recognized number of areas with polymetallic sulphides rich in metals used in high technology developments. A large part of these resources are in the vicinity of sensitive ecosystems, where the mineral extraction can potentially damage deep-ocean life services. In this context, technological research must ...

Abstract There are hundreds of thousands metric tons of microplastics (MPs) present in aquatic environments. The MPs coexist with other pollutants in water bodies, such as pharmaceuticals, and may carry and transfer them into aquatic organisms, consequently causing unpredictable ecological risks. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of the presence of polystyrene microplastics (PS-MPs) on the distribution and bioaccumulation of roxithromycin (ROX) in freshwater fish red ti...
