European farmland could be biggest global reservoir of microplastics
Farmlands across Europe are potentially the biggest global reservoir of microplastics due to the high concentrations found in fertilisers derived from sewage sludge, new research has shown. Scientists from Cardiff University and the University of Manchester estimate that between 31,000 and 42,000 tonnes of microplastics (or 86 - 710 trillion microplastic particles) are applied to European soils annually, mirroring the concentration of microplastics found in ocean surface waters.

Opinion: Climate change triggering global collapse in insect numbers
Opinion: Climate change triggering global collapse in insect numbers
The world may be facing a devastating "hidden" collapse in insect species due to the twin threats of climate change and habitat loss according to new research by Dr Tim Newbold and Dr Charlie Outhwaite (UCL Biosciences) Insects are critical to the future of our planet. They help to keep pest species under control and break down dead material to release nutrients into the soil.
