A regionalised life cycle assessment model to globally assess the environmental implications of soil salinization in irrigated agriculture
(Environmental Science and Technology, 2020-02-21)
We present a global, locally resolved life cycle assessment (LCA) model to assess the potential effects on soil quality due to the accumulation of water-soluble salts in the agricultural soil profile, allowing differentiation ...
Addressing the analytical challenges for the detection of ciguatoxins using an electrochemical biosensor
(Analytical Chemistry, 2020-03-05)
The importance of ciguatoxins (CTXs) in seafood safety and their emerging occurrence in locations far away from tropical areas highlight the need for simple and low-cost methods for the sensitive and rapid detection of ...
Evaluation and sensitivity analysis of diatom DNA metabarcoding for WFD bioassessment of Mediterranean rivers
(Science of The Total Environment, 2020-04-04)
Our study of 164 diatom samples from Catalonia (NE Spain) is the first to evaluate the applicability of DNA metabarcoding, based on high throughput sequencing (HTS) using a 312-bp rbcL marker, for biomonitoring Mediterranean ...
