The impact of biodegradable polymers on the environment -- Countermeasures on plastic and microplastic garbage management.Summary: This book focuses on microplastics as emerging persistent contaminants in terrestrial environments. Scientists from around the globe review recent advances in multi-disciplinary research on micro(nano)plastics, including analytical methods; the sources, fate and distribution of microplastics; ecological risks; toxicity and health risks; and control and countermeasures for microplastics in terrestrial environments. Offering a comprehensive overview of microplastics in terrestrial environments, the book is a valuable resource for environmental researchers, ecologists and toxicologists, as well as for policymakers and non-experts.PPN: PPN: 172847633XPackage identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-CMS | ZDB-2-SEB | ZDB-2-SXC
