Tropical ecosystems more reliant on emerging aquatic insects, study finds, potentially putting them at greater risk

A team of researchers from Queen Mary University of London and the University of Campinas in Brazil has found that tropical forest ecosystems are more reliant on aquatic insects than temperate forest ecosystems and are therefore more vulnerable to disruptions to the links between land and water.

Hazardous flame retardant OPEs detected at higher levels than BFRs at an informal end-of-life vehicle recycling site

Researchers in Ehime University (Japan) investigated the contamination levels and composition profiles of halogenated and phosphorous flame retardants in settled dust from informal waste processing sites in Vietnam, and detected the emerging flame retardants organophosphate esters (OPEs) at higher concentrations than those of the legacy brominated flame retardants (BFRs) in the end-of-life vehicle (ELV) processing site.
