Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Microplastics affect the survival of amphibians and invertebrates in river ecosystems

(University of the Basque Country ) In collaboration with the National Museum of Natural Sciences (CSIC) in Madrid, the UPV/EHU's Stream Ecology research group has conducted two parallel studies to look at how the larvae of one freshwater amphibian and one invertebrate evolved during 15 days' exposure to microplastics at different concentrations. The highest concentrations used had lethal effects and the intermediate ones reduced the growth of the amphibians.
