This journal article advances SDG 6 by proposing a dataset known as AquaTrash which is based on TACO data set and applying a proposed state-of-the-art deep learning-based object detection model known as AquaVision over AquaTrash dataset.
This book chapter advances SDGs 12, 13 and 14 by discussing the current warming of the Arctic climate caused by human exploitation activities and the potential impact these activities may have in driving a number of marine mammals and other vertebrate species to extinction, unless strong conservation initiatives are put in place immediately.
This chapter advances SDG 6, 11, and 14 by providing avenues for the application of sustainable bio-based polymers in wastewater treatment and their role in removing pesticides, to support clean water, a healthy ecosystem, and sustainable consumption.

In this Commentary, we outline how rewilding could reduce the negative effects of climate extremes on biodiversity mainly by protecting and creating microhabitats.
Protecting the ocean has become a major goal of international policy as human activities increasingly endanger the integrity of the ocean ecosystem, often summarized as “ocean health.” By and large, e
Sharks are a taxon of significant conservation concern and associated public interest.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 14 by discussing the exposome which provides an excellent translational framework for toxicological studies that examine the mechanisms by which certain environmental exposures alter our biology.

Insects support life on land (SDG 15) and below water (SDG 14) and help to provide clean water (SDG 6). While many studies have quantified the ecological services provided by insects in the temperate zones, we still lack consolidated information in the tropical realm where insects are the most diverse and abundant.

This article addresses goals 13, 14 and 15 by discussing how COVID-19 is impacting biodiversity, the research needed by conservation biologists, and their ability to protect ecosystems.

Biological Conservation, Volume 246, June 2020, 108524

This journal article addresses goals 13, 14 and 15 by discussing how IPBES and WWF publish global indicators of biodiversity which can be seen as scientifically highly questionable, generate simplistic and often misleading headlines in the media, and get in the way of proper science reporting.
