Microplastics: from emergent threat to public enemies

Quarta, 20 Novembro, 2019

Room 2.31a | Building 7 I Gambelas Campus
 

Topic: 

Microplastics (< 5 mm) are currently found in every corner of the world. Given their small size, they can be sequentially ingested by aquatic organisms along the entire food chain. In addition, microplastics act as vectors of pollutants. For these reasons, they are increasingly becoming a huge concern to scientists, policymakers, and the general public. During this seminar, we will discuss the potential toxicological effects of microplastics and the need for standardization of analyses.

 

About our speaker:

During her PhD, Isabel studied the effect of aerosols on marine microorganisms. Since March 2019, she is studying microplastic pollution at CCMAR.
