Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a special open access volume dedicated to the ecotoxicological effects of pollutants on aquatic organisms in Water from MDPI. Freshwater, brackish and marine compartments ecosystems have been the sink of many types of contaminants released from natural or anthropic sources, which even in vestigial concentrations can cause deleterious effects on the diverse aquatic biota. These effects are regularly reported worldwide by researchers and can occur at different degrees, namely at the molecular, cellular, tissue, biochemical, individual, population and community levels, with severe impacts on environmental and human health. In this sense all articles or review papers are welcome to be considered for this Special Issue, regardless of the trophic level studied, the approach used and ecological relevance of the measured effects. Cutting-edge, original manuscripts focusing on the effects of climate change on the properties, behaviour and bioavailability of the diverse environmental stressors, namely the emergent ones (e.g., microplastics, pharmaceuticals, nanoparticles and others) are also highly appreciated. We are looking forward to receiving your original manuscripts for this Special Issue.
