  • Causes of ecological degradation in waterways

    Human activities can have a multitude of different effects on rivers and streams, and it is difficult to identify those that have the biggest impact on aquatic populations. A newly developed method for assessing ecological degradation in waterways helps deal with this problem and could provide crucial information for water managers charged with tackling the root causes of degradation. In the EU, ...

  • Urban water ecology

    Sewage overflows are a fact of life in urban areas, and in many cities, excess sewage water enters streams and lakes with rain runoff. Although this pollution is harmful to most organisms, there is one group of insects that thrives on it: mosquitoes. Luis Fernando Chaves, a post-doctoral researcher at Emory University, and his team discovered mosquitoes in abundance in a sewage-contaminated ...


  • Washington State Continues Permits for Aquatic Pesticides

    OLYMPIA, Washington (ENS) - The Washington state Department of Ecology will continue using permits to control the use of aquatic pesticides in and around state waters. Use of the permits came into question when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, ruled in November 2006 that a pesticide applied according to the federal label is not a pollutant under the federal Clean ...

  • Silver nanoparticles could pose risk to aquatic ecosystems

    Silver nanoparticles are toxic to common bacteria at concentrations found in many aquatic environments across the globe, new research has found. Bacteria often form a key part of ecosystems and these impacts may be felt by the entire system, the researchers warn. Silver nanoparticles are between one and a hundred nanometres (nm) in size and are now used for their antimicrobial action in a wide ...

  • Tidal Marshes protect aquatic ecosystems and store carbon

    A team of scientists measured nitrogen and phosphorus retention and carbon sequestration by tidal marsh soils along the Georgia coast to document the role of these wetlands in storing carbon and removing nutrients at the landscape scale. The results suggest that tidal marches protect aquatic ecosystems from eutrophication, caused by the accumulation of nutrients that disrupts ecosystems and ...

  • Atkins appointed to national ecology framework

  • Washington state issues aquatic weed control pesticide permit

    Although the key definition of whether a pesticide applied to surface waters is, or is not, a pollutant is still to be decided in court. The Washington State Department of Ecology Wednesday reissued a general permit for the application of pesticides to control aquatic weeds in irrigation water conveyance systems. The permit covers 16 irrigation districts that use pesticides to control aquatic ...

  • ASTM E1366 - 11 standard practice for standardized aquatic microcosms: fresh water

  • Unconventional shale gas and oil: overview of ecological impacts

    Research findings on the wildlife and habitat impacts of unconventional shale gas and oil developments in the US have been collated in a new review. Its authors stress the importance of collecting data on local ecosystems before such developments begin, to allow changes in nature be tracked and aid on-going improvements to management. Unconventional shale oil and gas are already important sources ...
