A review of techniques used to anlyze microplastics: are they green?
Proximity and size of the nearest market (‘market gravity’) have been shown to have strong negative effects on coral reef fish communities that can be mitigated by the establishment of closed areas.
Anthropogenic activity is a major driver of seabird injury and mortality in the 21st century. In the current study we aimed to monitor glucocorticoid metabolites (ufGCM) concentrations, as a marker of physiological stress, in injured, emaciated (starvation/illness) and oiled African penguins through the stages of rehabilitation at a rescue centre in South Africa.
Despite the importance of tropical forest conservation in achieving global sustainability goals and the key role of forest-risk commodity trade in driving deforestation, consumer country policy option
