Special Issue Information
Water is the origin of life, and aquatic ecosystems play an important role in human life by providing aquatic products. However, the rapid development of the economy is accompanied by the discharge of various pollutants. Chemical pollutants, including petroleum, heavy metals, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), persistent organic pollutants (POPs), pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), microplastics (MPs), nanoparticles (NPs), etc., are frequently detected in water environments and pose adverse effects on aquatic organisms and the whole ecosystem. In addition, biological pollutants, e.g., harmful algae, bacteria, and viruses, also threaten the life activities of aquatic organisms and the ecosystem. Great efforts have been made to illustrate the effects of pollutants on the individual, population, community, and ecosystem levels. To clarify the toxicology of the pollutants, the cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of pollutants have also been well studied. This Special Issue focuses on the effects of environmental pollutants on aquatic animals and ecosystems. Papers concerning toxicity evaluation and the toxic mechanism of pollutants that affect aquatic animals at the molecular, cellular, organ, individual, and population levels are welcomed, as well as papers on the effects of environmental pollutants on material cycling, energy flow, and signal transfer of the aquatic ecosystem.
