The bigger picture behind marine pollution

Bentham Science has published a new book series, Marine Ecology: Current and Future Developments, which aims to bring fresh perspectives on the subject of marine environments and their role in driving sustainability around the world. Besides providing food, transportation and lifestyle resources, the oceans serve as a vast sink to absorb increases in global heat, mitigating, at least temporarily, more extreme changes in global climate.

The first volume of the series, Marine Pollution: Current Status, Impacts and Remedies, edited by De-Sheng Pei and Muhammad Junaid. The book provides information about methods to assess pollution provide important information for identifying, measuring, and remediating various pollutants, known pollutants and their management. The work reminds the reader about how widespread the problems caused by marine pollution are and that intense international effort is required to resolve the problems.

This book will prove to be a useful resource for students, researchers, and policymakers, who are working on the management and protection of the world’s valuable marine resources and environment.


About The Editors:

Desheng Pei, Professor of Chinese Academy of Sciences, currently leads the Research Center for Environment and Health (RCEH) at Chongqing Institute of Green and Intelligent Technology (CIGIT).

Dr. Pei received his Ph.D. degree from Institute of Hydrobiology (IHB), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2003. Dr. Pei initially studied the mechanisms of DNA damage and repair. He has worked as a research fellow at Northeastern University (U.S.A) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School (U.S.A) to study on the mechanism of carcinogenesis of neuroblastoma. His work have been published on more than 80 journals, including PLOS Genetics, Nucleic Acids Research, Cancer Cell, Biomaterials, and Environmental Pollution. His current research interests mainly focus on studying toxicological effects, mechanisms and ecological risk assessment of classic environmental pollutants. He is endeavouring to develop real-time biological monitoring technologies for pollutants and explore the pathogenic mechanisms and carcinogenesis.

Muhammad Junaid earned his Ph.D. degree from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), Beijing in 2018. Currently, He is working as Research Fellow at School of Environment and Energy, Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School, Shenzhen, China. Dr. Junaid’s research work is focused on understanding the ecological risks and toxicogenetic impacts of emerging and legacy organic and inorganic pollutants in the aquatic environment, model organisms and human cell lines. His work has been published in Environmental Pollution, Science of the Total Environment, Chemosphere, Aquatic Toxicology, Biomaterials and Journal of Hazardous Materials.
