Bioaccessibility of lipophilic and hydrophilic marine biotoxins in seafood: An in vitro digestion approach
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2019-04-28)
This study aimed to assess the bioaccessibility of different marine biotoxins in naturally contaminated shellfish and fish gonads using an in vitro digestion methodology. In general, hydrophilic toxins (domoic acid, paralytic ...
The rise of blockchain technology in agriculture and food supply chains
(Trends in Food Science and Technology, 2019-07-30)
Blockchain is an emerging digital technology allowing ubiquitous financial transactions among distributed untrusted parties, without the need of intermediaries such as banks. This article examines the impact of blockchain ...
Modelling physical characteristics of river habitats
(River Research and Applications, 2019-05-24)
The physical characteristics of river habitats constitute the setting in which fluvial biota dwell and thrive. Determining the spatial and temporal patterns of physical habitat characteristics and the main factors that ...
Connecting the morphological and molecular species concepts to facilitate species identification within the genus Fragilaria (Bacillariophyta)
(Journal of Phycology, 2019-05-20)
This paper explores the diversity and taxonomy of species within Fragilaria sensu stricto, an abundant and ecologically important diatom genus, taking advantage of cultured and DNA ‐barcoded material. The goal is to ...
Fast analysis of relevant contaminants mixture in commercial shellfish
One of the major challenges currently faced is to develop systematic ways of addressing chemical mixtures in environmental assessment. With this purpose, a simple, rapid, and sensitive method for the detection and ...
Drought decreases incorporation of recent plant photosynthate into soil food webs regardless of their trophic complexity
(Global Change Biology, 2019-07-13)
Theory suggests that more complex food webs promote stability and can buffer the effects of perturbations, such as drought, on soil organisms and ecosystem functions. Here, we tested experimentally how soil food web trophic ...
