The synergistic effects of biological invasions have long been considered significant causes of biodiversity loss worldwide. Therefore, early detection monitoring is crucial in mitigating nonindigenous species (NIS) threats. In the marine environment, settlement plates were used as monitoring devices in ports, but this method was mainly applied to...
The Red Sea's unique ecosystem is home to >1500 species. However, the presence of anthropogenic litter, whether from land-based or sea-based sources, may pose a potential risk to the Red Sea fauna and flora. This work analyzes marine litter in the Red Sea, utilizing the Drivers-Pressure-State-Impact-Response (DPSIR) framework to group findings in a...

This is an Action Plan regarding the issues of marine litter in the Red Sea, including a summary and status-quo of the current initiatives.
Experiment about trophic transfer of microplastic, comparing native and invasive species. Funded by Assemble+ Transnational Access
Marine litter is a global environmental problem affecting the ecosystem and the health and livelihood of human beings. The Red Sea, located between North Africa and the Middle East, is semi surrounded by Egypt, Eritrea, Jordan, Israel, Saudi-Arabia, Sudan and Yemen. The Red Sea comprises fascinating coral reef systems, which sustain a wide range of...
Litter is omnipresent in the ocean where it can be ingested by marine biota. Although ingestion of microplastics (MPs) is abundantly reported, insights into how MP can influence predator-prey interactions currently limits our understanding of the ecological impact of MPs. Here we demonstrate trophic transfer of MPs from zooplankton to benthic filte...
