Freshwater and airborne textile fibre populations are dominated by ‘natural’, not microplastic, fibres (2019)
Journal Article
Stanton, T., Johnson, M., Nathanail, P., MacNaughtan, W., & Gomes, R. L. (2019). Freshwater and airborne textile fibre populations are dominated by ‘natural’, not microplastic, fibres. Science of the Total Environment, 666, 377-389. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2019.02.278

The potential role of natural textile fibres as environmental pollutants has been speculated upon by some environmental scientists, however, there is a general consensus that their biodegradability reduces their environmental threat. Whilst the risks... Read More about Freshwater and airborne textile fibre populations are dominated by ‘natural’, not microplastic, fibres.

Anthropogenic environmental drivers of antimicrobial resistance in wildlife (2018)
Journal Article
Swift, B. M., Bennett, M., Waller, K., Dodd, C., Murray, A., Gomes, R. L., …Arnold, K. E. (2019). Anthropogenic environmental drivers of antimicrobial resistance in wildlife. Science of the Total Environment, 649, 12-20. doi:10.1016/j.scitotenv.2018.08.180

The isolation of antimicrobial resistant bacteria (ARB) from wildlife living adjacent to humans has led to the suggestion that such antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is anthropogenically driven by exposure to antimicrobials and ARB. However, ARB have al... Read More about Anthropogenic environmental drivers of antimicrobial resistance in wildlife.
