Chapter
In this chapter we review the available data on the application of non-targeted high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) analysis to identify a wide range of substances (mainly emerging pollutants) present in sludge. We focus on non-targeted workflows developed with these instruments: (1) the screening of suspects or broad screening and (2) the ana...

The elevated concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) due to natural and anthropogenic causes is a significant bane to marine and coastal organisms, as it has a prolonged half-life and can inject across lipid bilayers and interfere with aquatic redox processes. The present assessment aimed to determine the acute effect of H2O2 on larval developmen...

Anguilla anguilla (Linnaeus, 1758) species is critically endangered. The impacts of anthropogenic origin, including the presence of contaminants in the marine ecosystem, affect the stages of the eel's life cycle. Studying the occurrence of these contaminants in eels it is possible to assess their exposition and safeguard them. This species has also...
Article
Full-text available
One of the aspects considered about the presence of contaminants in the aquatic ecosystems is their possible effect on critically endangered species, as the case of European eel, Anguilla anguilla. However, there is a lack of analytical methods to determine these contaminants due to the complexity of eel matrix (contains 5-20 % of lipids and 5-15 %...
Article
The concept of wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) also known as sewage epidemiology, was proposed by Daughton in 2001. WBE has become now a reality that makes it possible to determine consumption or exposure to chemical substances or pathogens in a population by measuring certain compounds (drugs of abuse, metabolites or biomarkers) or microorgani...

This article includes 23 new records of alien and cryptogenic species in the Mediterranean Sea, belonging to 4 Phyla (Chordata, Echinodermata, Arthropoda and Mollusca), distributed from the Alboran to the Levantine Sea. Records are reported from eight countries listed from West to East as follows: Algeria: new records of the Atlantic blue crab Call...

Carbamazepine exposed individuals of anemone such as, Anemonia sulcata and Actinia equina species were analyzed by ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-HRMS) on a quadrupole-time-of-flight (QqTOF) with an electrospray ionization source working in the positive ionization (ESI+) mode, (Agilent Technolo...
Article
Pharmaceuticals and other emerging contaminants (EC) have been increasingly detected and measured in coastal waters and large effort has been devoted to knowing the effects these substances have in coastal ecosystems. Anthozoa class is underrepresented in ecotoxicology studies despite some of their species being endangered. Anemonia sulcata and Act...

This study reports the returning of the seahorse in the Faro Lake and the most recent finding in a brackish coastal Mediterranean lagoon. After about 50 years from the first documented occurrence of Hippocampus hippocampus (Linnaeus, 1758) within the "Capo Peloro Lagoons", North East Sicily, two adult specimens were observed alive in 2015. During t...

Marine organisms represent a valuable source of new compounds. The biodiversity of the marine environment and the associated chemical diversity constitute a practically unlimited source of new active substances in the field of the development of bioactive products (El-Amraoui et al., 2010). Marine sponges have been considered as a very fertile fiel...

In this reply, we address the criticism directed recently to our work (Malaquias et al. 2016) by Galil et al. (2016) dismissing the hypothesis that the Suez Canal can act as a revolving door allowing marine species to move both ways between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. We reiterate that the presence in the Red Sea of the Indo-West Pacific...
Article
A census of the “opisthobranch” fauna in the Faro Lake and connected canals (NE Sicily) has been realized by photo documentation and specimen samplings, carried out monthly from February 2010 to the present. A total of 47 species have been reported, nine of which are cited in the historic and recent literature (from 1969 to 2016) vs. 38 first recor...

Article
Full-text available
The number of tropical species established in the Mediterranean Sea has risen at an unprecedented rate in the last 40–50 years, often entering the basin from the Red Sea and to a lesser extent by shipping or mariculture. The taxonomic identity of these alien species can be difficult to determine and DNA barcoding can help to clarify the status of q...
