Open Access Perspective

Environmental transmission of diarrheal pathogens in low and middle income countries

Globally more than half a million children die every year from diarrheal diseases. This Perspective suggests that reductions in diarrheal disease transmission in LMICs can be achieved by accounting for site-specific factors when designing environmental interventions. This is discussed in the context of the characteristics of the most important diarrheal diseases as well as environmental reservoirs.

Critical Review

Hardwiring microbes via direct interspecies electron transfer: mechanisms and applications

Direct interspecies electron transfer (DIET) has important implications for the design and operation of biological treatment processes.

Controls on metal exposure to aquatic organisms in urban streams

Streams in urban ecosystems receive metal inputs primarily from stormwater runoff and wastewater effluent.

Concentration dynamics of coarse and fine particulate matter at and around signalised traffic intersections

The understanding of rapidly evolving concentrations of particulate matter (PMC) at signalised traffic intersections (TIs) is limited, but it is important for accurate exposure assessment.

Chemical controls on abiotic and biotic release of geogenic arsenic from Pleistocene aquifer sediments to groundwater

Co-cycling of arsenic, manganese, iron, and dissolved organic carbon govern the extent and mode of geogenic arsenic mobilization into groundwater.

Wildfires and water chemistry: effect of metals associated with wood ash

The dissolution of metal-bearing carbonate and oxide phases in ash, and metal re-adsorption to ash can impact water quality after post-fire storm events.

Sticking to (first) principles: quantum molecular dynamics and Bayesian probabilistic methods to simulate aquatic pollutant absorption spectra

This work explores the relationship between theoretically predicted excitation energies and experimental molar absorption spectra as they pertain to environmental aquatic photochemistry.

Chronic exposure to triclosan sustains microbial community shifts and alters antibiotic resistance gene levels in anaerobic digesters

At environmentally relevant levels triclosan caused an increase in mexB, but had no impact on intI1.

Sorption selectivity of birnessite particle edges: a d-PDF analysis of Cd(II) and Pb(II) sorption by δ-MnO2 and ferrihydrite

Birnessite minerals (layer-type MnO2), which bear both internal (cation vacancies) and external (particle edges) metal sorption sites, are important sinks of contaminants in soils and sediments.
