About this event
Reliable toxicity data is needed to assess the potential risk of microplastic exposure to aquatic ecosystems. This includes a more complete foundational understanding of microplastic toxicity and better characterization of the hazards they may present. However, there are notable shortcomings and data gaps in the available microplastic toxicity literature. This presentation will summarize specific research recommendations from an international expert panel to gain a better understanding of the key drivers of microplastic toxicity and the concentrations at which adverse effects may occur, allowing a better understanding of the potential risk that microplastics exposure might pose to aquatic ecosystems.
