Plastic additives: challenges in ecotox hazard assessment
Monika Mortimer –– The article presents an excellent synthesis of the state of the art in environmental impacts of plastic additives released from micro- and nanosized plastic particles. It is of interest to a wide audience ranging from regulators and toxicologists to plastics manufacturers.
Potentially toxic metal(loid) distribution and migration in the bottom weathering profile of indigenous zinc smelting slag pile in clastic rock region
Carlos Zuniga-Gonzalez –– Potentially toxic metal (loid) distribution and migration in the bottom weathering profile of indigenous zinc smelting slag pile in clastic rock region is a contribution to be considered in policies to mitigate environmental impact, fundamentally in countries where indigenous people and those living in poverty can be affected by intoxication.
Cropland heterogeneity changes on the Northeast China Plain in the last three decades (1980s–2010s)
Carlos Zuniga-Gonzalez –– Dear colleague thanks for you observations and comments.
Understanding PM2.5 concentration and removal efficiency variation in urban forest park—Observation at human breathing height
Valsaraj KT –– The data on particulate matter in an urban forest park site in China may find relevance in many other parts of the developing world
