A team of researchers from Rutgers University, New Brunswick has found that microplastic particles are polluting the iconic Passaic and Raritan rivers. The recent study reports that the team found more than 300 organic chemical compounds from microplastics in the rivers: 299 compounds in the Passaic, with 255 in the Raritan River and 81 in the Newark and Raritan bays.
These results highlight how serious the microplastics challenge is—and how tricky it is to research, in that “microplastics” really refers to so many different compounds.
“The European Union has registered over 30,000 different plastic polymers,” remarks study lead author Beth Ravit, who also co-directs the Rutgers Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability .Read More
Surveying waterways for defining habitats and ranges may soon be much quicker and easier thanks to the applied use of environmental DNA (eDNA). Traditional studies have relied upon the slow, difficult, and somewhat haphazard process of catching fauna in the field using any number of techniques. This is even more difficult than usual when the target of the study is an endangered animal.
A new company NatureMetrics , which spun-out from the University of East Anglia (UEA) , is taking on this challenge with its eDNA tech.
“We were founded to work on developing high-throughput ways of measuring biodiversity, and environmental DNA is one element of that,” Dr. Kat Bruce , the director of NatureMetrics, remarks to EM.Read More
“I remember how I first became fascinated with eels,” says Chris Bowser, Education Coordinator for the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) and Hudson River Estuary Program (HREP) of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in partnership with Cornell University’s NYS Water Resource Institute . “I was doing a talk on a ship called the Clearwater. There was a trawl net catch on the deck and I picked up one of the things in the catch. It was a piece of trash, a plastic toy truck with barnacles growing on it. I was speaking to the audience and they seemed really riveted! I was thinking, ‘I must be giving a really good talk.Read More
