    • An ecological perspective on nanomaterial impacts in the environment. 

      Bernhardt, Emily S; Colman, Benjamin P; Hochella, Michael F; Cardinale, Bradley J; Nisbet, Roger M; Richardson, Curtis J; Yin, Liyan (J Environ Qual, 2010-11)
      Growing concerns over the potential for unintended, adverse consequences of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in the environment have generated new research initiatives focused on understanding the ecological effects of ENPs. ...
    • Consistent declines in aquatic biodiversity across diverse domains of life in rivers impacted by surface coal mining. 

      Simonin, Marie; Rocca, Jennifer D; Gerson, Jacqueline R; Moore, Eric; Brooks, Alexander C; Czaplicki, Lauren; Ross, Matthew RV; ... (10 authors) (Ecol Appl, 2021-06-17)
      The rivers of Appalachia (USA) are among the most biologically diverse freshwater ecosystems in the temperate zone and are home to numerous endemic aquatic organisms. Throughout the Central Appalachian ecoregion, extensive ...
    • Emerging contaminant or an old toxin in disguise? Silver nanoparticle impacts on ecosystems. 

      Colman, Benjamin P; Espinasse, Benjamin; Richardson, Curtis J; Matson, Cole W; Lowry, Gregory V; Hunt, Dana E; Wiesner, Mark R; ... (8 authors) (Environ Sci Technol, 2014-05-06)
      The use of antimicrobial silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in consumer-products is rising. Much of these AgNPs are expected to enter the wastewater stream, with up to 10% of that eventually released as effluent into aquatic ecosystems ...
    • Low concentrations of silver nanoparticles in biosolids cause adverse ecosystem responses under realistic field scenario. 

      Colman, Benjamin P; Arnaout, Christina L; Anciaux, Sarah; Gunsch, Claudia K; Hochella, Michael F; Kim, Bojeong; Lowry, Gregory V; ... (14 authors) (PLoS One, 2013)
      A large fraction of engineered nanomaterials in consumer and commercial products will reach natural ecosystems. To date, research on the biological impacts of environmental nanomaterial exposures has largely focused ...
