SESSION: Micro- e nanoplastics (MNPs) in soil ecosystem= - ID133628

 

Plastic pollution has been largely explored and recognized in marine environments, while in soil is a relatively new topic, notwithstanding plastic contamination on land might be 4-23-fold larger than in the ocean and agricultural soils alone might store more plastic than oceanic basins. Considering the importance of this topic, within this Session we intend to offer a platform for discussion and invite interested scientists, experts, and stakeholders to present new insights, projects, initiatives, results related to the study of this novel topic in soil ecosystem.


KEYWORDS:
1. Emerging soil health threats
2. MNPs in soil ecosystem
3. MNPs sampling techniques
4. Effects on soil biodiversity
5. Regulation and guidelines

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: The deadline to apply is set on 15 January 2024.
