The time course of molecular acclimation to seawater in a euryhaline fish.

Sci Rep 2021 Sep 13;11(1):18127. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Swire Institute of Marine Science, School of Biological Sciences, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong SAR, China.

The Arabian pupfish, Aphanius dispar, is a euryhaline fish inhabiting both inland nearly-freshwater desert ponds and highly saline Red Sea coastal lagoons of the Arabian Peninsula. Desert ponds and coastal lagoons, located respectively upstream and at the mouths of dry riverbeds ("wadies"), have been found to potentially become connected during periods of intense rainfall, which could allow the fish to migrate between these different habitats. Flash floods would therefore flush Arabian pupfish out to sea, requiring a rapid acclimation to a greater than 40 ppt change in salinity. Read More

Fate of sulfamethoxazole in compost, manure and soil amended with previously stored organic wastes.

Sci Total Environ 2021 Aug 30;803:150023. Epub 2021 Aug 30.

Université Paris-Saclay, INRAE, AgroParisTech, UMR ECOSYS, 78850 Thiverval-Grignon, France.

Application of organic wastes as soil fertilizers represents an important route of agricultural soil contamination by antibiotics such as sulfamethoxazole (SMX). Soil contamination may be influenced by the storage time of organic wastes before soil spreading. The objective of this work was to study the fate of SMX in two organic wastes, a co-compost of green waste and sewage sludge and a bovine manure, which were stored between 0 and 28 days, then incorporated in an agricultural soil that has never received organic waste and monitored for 28 days under laboratory conditions.
