    • 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. ...
    • 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 ...
