Article
The objective was to establish possible temporal patterns in the microplastics (MPs) abundance in the water and in the intertidal sediment in an urbanized location of the Río de la Plata estuary (Argentina), in relation to environmental factors. The site was sampled monthly for a year (February 2019–January 2020). The presence of MPs was recorded,...
Article
Microplastics (MPs) are considered emerging pollutants and often enter aquatic ecosystems carried by currents and tides until they accumulate on the shorelines. In many cases they may be colonized by diverse microorganisms forming a community called plastisphere, which can even act as a reservoir for pathogenic microorganisms. This study carried ou...
Chapter
Research on marine litter and microplastics (MPs) at coastal/marine areas has gained a great interest from the scientific community and policymakers, due to the global outreach and growing reports showing dramatic increasing levels. MPs have been shown at both abiotic and biotic matrices and they became accessible for ingestion by a wide variety of...
Article
The goal of this study was to analyse the presence, abundance, types, size and colours of microplastics (MPs) in the soft tissue of the golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei in the freshwater-mixohaline tidal zone of Río de la Plata estuary. 240 mussels were analysed and the MPs were observed in the 96% of samples, being more abundant in the mussels th...

What kind of research questions do ecologists make in relation to plastic waste in Argentina? This question gathered a group of researchers at the symposium “Ecology of plastic waste: What do we study in Argentina?”, held at the XXVIII Argentinian Ecology Meeting. In this communication we analyze the national context on plastic waste. Our studies o...

La incógnita planteada en el título reunió a un grupo de investigadores en el simposio “Ecología de residuos plásticos: ¿Qué estudiamos en Argentina?”, llevado a cabo en la XXVIII Reunión Argentina de Ecología. En esta comunicación hacemos un análisis del contexto nacional sobre residuos plásticos. Nuestros estudios en ecología de plásticos buscaro...
Article
This study explores in plankton samples the abundance, distribution, size, types (fibres and fragments), colours of the microplastics (MPs) and its relation with the characteristics of the plankton (size and morphology) of the Río de la Plata estuary. Water samples were collected in triplicate in freshwater-mixohaline tidal zone of the estuary, in...
Article
The presence of microplastics (MPs) in gut contents of coastal freshwater fish of the Rio de la Plata estuary was studied. Samples were taken in six sites where 87 fish belonging to 11 species and four feeding habits were captured. Presence of MPs was verified in the 100% of fish. The fibres represented the 96% of MPs found. The number of MPs in gu...
Poster
Los microplásticos, partículas menores a 5mm, considerados contaminantes emergentes en los ecosistemas acuáticos, son transportados por el agua y se acumulan en las costas. Sus consecuencias son más estudiadas en el medio marino que en el agua dulce. Los organismos interactúan con los microplásticos por dos vías, ingiriéndolos y/o colonizándolos. A...
