Plastic Nanoparticles Can Negatively Affect Organisms in Freshwater Bodies

Plastic Nanoparticles Can Negatively Affect Organisms in Freshwater Bodies

Organisms can be negatively affected by plastic nanoparticles, not just in the seas and oceans but in freshwater bodies too. These particles slow the growth of algae, cause deformities in water fleas and impede communication between small organisms and fish. These are the results of research carried out by Wageningen University and IMARES, part of Wageningen UR, published in the latest issue of Environmental Science and Technology. It is the first time that such effects of plastic on freshwater organisms have been studied. [More]
