About this collection

Kristin Schirmer and Melanie Auffan guest edit this themed collection, which provides a state-of-the-art synopsis of mechanistic knowledge obtained thus far with regard to the interactions of engineered nanomaterials with organisms in the environment, i.e. aquatic or terrestrial.

The collection is a well-rounded assembly of articles aimed at elucidating mechanisms of nanomaterial-organism interactions based on thorough nanomaterial characterisation as it presents itself upon exposure to organisms.
