2016 Aquatic Biofilms: Ecology, Water Quality and Wastewater Treatment  
Since biofilms integrate the environmental effects of water chemistry, along with the physical and geomorphological characteristics of rivers and lakes, they have been widely applied in biomonitoring.  ...  In particular, diatoms are extensively used as reliable environmental indicators. Diatoms are microscopic, unicellular brown algae, which often dominate the algal biomass of biofilms.  ...  Financial support was also provided by the Spanish Science and Education Ministry (project CTM2009-14111-CO2-01) and the Spanish Economy and Competitiveness Ministry (project CGL2013-43822-R).  ...

Su Yin Chee, John Barry Gallagher, Jean Chai Yee, Danielle Carey, Yusri Yusup
2019 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
To address this shortfall, abundance, sorting, and diversity parameters of AMD were evaluated across the canopy of Penang's urban and peri-urban mangroves.  ...  Diversity of debris forms were consistent with the type of land use and population livelihood in each area.  ...  Environmental (changing temperature, pH, hypoxic, osmotic) and anthropogenic pollutants (endocrine disruptor, pharmaceutical waste, heavy metals, nanomaterial) could trigger the imbalance of cellular redox  ...
