Open submission for a journal Special Issue on the effects after the exposure of fish embryos to hazardous materials

23 June 2022

The IDAEA researchers Melissa Faria and Demetrio Raldúa, from the Environmental Toxicology group, are the topic editors of the Special Issue “Short- and long-term effects after the exposure of fish embryos to environmental levels of hazardous materials” from the Frontiers in Physiology journal.

This research topic supports research using novel ecotoxicological approaches to access developmental toxicity in different fish species. Articles addressing effects of exposure to relevant concentrations of pollutants at multi-levels of organization are strongly encouraged.

Potential areas of interest may include, but are not limited to:

  • Behavioral impairment following early-life exposure to environmental contaminants
  • Linking epigenetic changes induced by the early-life exposure to pollutants and behavioral impairment in the adult stage
  • Investigate which physiological mechanisms, such as metabolic, neurological, and hormonal are altered through early life exposure to pollutants
  • Integrate behavioral effects of environmental toxicants with physiological processes at multi-levels of organization

Submission deadlines:

  • 6 August 2022: Abstract
  • 5 October 2022: Manuscript
