Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
iScience, Volume 26, Issue 1, 20 January 2023, 105803
In this paper the authors show how the heterogeneity in cities means that individual cities need specific low-carbon roadmaps, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach
Ocean Modelling, Volume 183, June 2023
This paper is particularly relevant to investigations into the spread of organisms that remain close to shore over timescales of days-to-weeks, e.g., the spread of marine non-native species and pathogenetic parasites, but is equally relevant to simulations tracking the dispersal of eDNA or coastal pollutants such as oil and plastics.

Review of microplastics in museum specimens: An under-utilized tool to better understand the Plasticene
Marine Pollution Bulletin, Volume 191, June 2023, 114922
This review will spur more investigations on microplastic ingestion in historical specimens to establish reference points and determine temporal trends for microplastic pollution of the environment.
Seasonal monitoring of microplastic pollution in the Southeast Black Sea: An example of red mullet (Mullus barbatus) gastrointestinal tracts
Marine Pollution Bulletin, Volume 191, June 2023, 114886
This study is a long-term monitoring study in which inter-seasonal relations are established. Thus, the spread of MP pollution in the region during the year was provided by an important bio-indicator.
Abundance and composition of microplastics in Tampico beach sediments, Tamaulipas State, southern Gulf of Mexico
Marine Pollution Bulletin, Volume 191, June 2023, 114891
This study provides significant information on the occurrence and composition of MPs in the Tampico beach, in addition, we compared the abundance of MPs of this study with similar studies from different parts of the world.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd every year to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The theme for Earth day 2023 is Invest In Our Planet. Elsevier is proud to highlight these freely accessible book chapters and journal articles in honour of this event.
