Microplastics – what do we know

Ecotoxicologist Alice Horton gave a presentation on microplastics at the CIWEM Priority Substances and Micro-Pollutants conference in London on September 14, 2017. The video of her presentation can be seen at the link below.

Alice is a researcher in microplastics and environmental pollution at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), a NERC research centre in the UK.

The video starts with an introduction of microplastics, sources of microplastics, and associated ecological and human health impacts. It concludes with microplastics within freshwater environments and identifies key research questions that should be investigated.
