- ... Surficial sediments exhibit higher levels of contamination than overlying water, especially from persistent contaminants such as trace metallic elements (TMEs). While sediments could in turn act as sources of contamination for the water column, their ecotoxicology is yet rarely assessed in a multi-compartments perspective. This study aims at assessing the response of benthic and pelagic organisms ...

- ... Alkylphenols are well-known endocrine disruptors and may cause developmental and reproductive disorders in aquatic organisms. Daphnia magna is commonly used in ecotoxicological studies as a promising model species to investigate the effects of endocrine distruptors. In the present study, transcriptional modulation of eleven potential molecular indicators related to detoxification, antioxidant, dev ...
