Antibiotic resistance is a public health problem of growing concern. Animal manure application to soil is considered to be a main cause of the propagation and dissemination of antibiotic residues, antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB), and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the soil-water system. In recent decades, studies on the impact of antibio...
Article
Non-point sources of pollution, primarily agricultural drainage waters, can cause eutrophication and deterioration of water bodies. Surface flow constructed wetlands (SFCWs) are an ecological solution that can represent an efficient barrier and prevent agricultural pollutants from reaching other ecosystems. However, to better manage them and to und...

Key message Specific VOC emissions from infected plants allow their recognition and elicit defence responses in neighboring plants, which are, however, insufficient to induce resistance. Abstract A wide range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is released during plant–pathogen interactions both by the pathogens and the hosts. Some of these VOCs a...
Article
DNA-based protocols are the standard methods for the diagnosis of infected plant material. Nevertheless, these methods are time-consuming and require trained personnel, with an efficacy depending on the sampling procedure. In comparison, recognition methods based on volatile compounds emissions are less precise, but allow a non-destructive mass scr...

The thermal regeneration of sulfamethoxazole (SMX)-loaded Y and ZSM-5 zeolites was studied using a combined in situ high-temperature synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction and thermal degradation study. The evolution of the structural features was monitored in real time in the 30–575°C temperature range by full-profile Rietveld analysis. SMX thermal...
Conference Paper
The anionic nature of veterinary sulfonamide antibiotics (sulfa drugs) makes them highly mobile along soil profile and is responsible for their accumulation into water bodies. Owing to their environmental diffusion and persistence, sulfonamides are responsible to induce high level of resistance in bacteria through by-pass mechanism. To limit the di...

The project Green4Water is an Italian national research project that is coordinated by the University of Bologna and funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research within the call PRIN 2015. The other participants in the project are the University of Catania, the University of Palermo, the University of Padova and the Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria. The main objective of the project is to study and optimise the use of the green infrastructures in the urban and rural areas in order to achieve the sustainable management of water resources and to protect water bodies. In particular, the project is oriented to wastewater treatment and natural water retention measures. If applied on a larger scale, such green infrastructures could have numerous benefits and positive impacts on scientific, technical, social and economic sphere. During the duration of the project Green4Water studies, special research and monitoring activities will be performed on various real or pilot scale systems. They are located in the areas with different climate and regional conditions, in the production (agricultural, agroindustrial and zootechnical), urban and suburban areas. In particular, the objectives are to evaluate and optimise the performance, technical and economical application, their capacity to offer services, efficiency, and modes in which the analysed green infrastructures can be managed. https://site.unibo.it/green4water/en
