Early warning signals: identifying sublethal responses caused by exposure to nanoplastics in aquatic ecosystems

Project: Research


Plastic pollution is one of our major emerging global environmental threats. When released into nature, plastic will fragment into smaller pieces, eventually reaching the nano-scale. Current knowledge regarding sublethal effects caused by exposure to nanoplastics is very scarce. This project aims at identifying sublethal responses related to predator - prey interactions in aquatic food webs.
