Aluminium is the most abundant element in the earth crust, and has no known biological function. However, it is an established neurotoxicant in its trivalent oxidation state, with exposure resulting in neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s dise...

© 2017 SETAC Sponges are a potential alternative model species to bivalves in pollution biomonitoring and environmental risk assessment in the aquatic ecosystem. In the present study, a novel in vivo exposure sponge culture model was developed from f...
