- ... Natural toxins can be classified according to their origin into biotoxins produced by microorganisms (fungal biotoxins or mycotoxins, algal and bacterial toxins), plant toxins or phytotoxins and animal toxins. Biotoxins are generated to protect organisms from external agents also in the act of predation. Among the different groups, bacterial toxins, mycotoxins and phytotoxins can produce damages i ...

- ... Plastics are a frequently observed component of marine debris and there is growing concern about microplastic (MP) ecotoxicity, and the impacts of additives, sorbed hazardous organic contaminants, heavy metals, and biofilm on MP surfaces. The relative importance of MP from different terrestrial and freshwater sources is poorly understood and limits our ability to develop best management practices. ...
