Atmospheric Pollution Research Volume 6, Issue 2, March 2015, Ranking the suitability of common urban tree species for controlling PM2.5 pollution. Open Access Abstract Pollution caused by particles with aerodynamic diameters less than 2.5 μm (PM2.5) is now a major environmental problem in many Asian cities.
Planting more trees has been suggested as an unconventional approach to alleviate the problem. In this study, we developed a ranking approach to evaluate the PM2.5 removal efficiency, negative impacts on air quality, and the suitability to urban environments of commonly occurring urban tree species. The results showed that the most frequently occurring tree species in global cities were not the best performers in removing PM2.5.

PLANET EARTH 09/08/13 Bird eggs reveal urban pollution. Bird eggs reveal urban pollution 9 August 2013, by Tom Marshall Birds' eggs show just how serious a problem river pollution remains in the UK's former industrial heartlands, according to a new study.
Scientists analysed the eggs of Eurasian Dippers living in 33 rivers in South Wales, comparing the eggs of birds living along urban waterways with those of their rural peers. The city-dwellers' eggs contained large amounts of several harmful chemicals – in some cases four times higher than their country cousins, and approaching levels known to cause permanent damage. Indeed, the team detected some of the highest levels of one particular class of pollutants ever recorded in songbirds. The rivers of the Welsh valleys suffered severe pollution during the area's mining and industrial heyday; in the 1970s they were among Europe's most contaminated watercourses. But the cleanup hasn't gone nearly far enough. IJERPH, Vol. 10, 2013: Study of Environmental Health Problems in Korea Using Integrated Environmental Health Indicators.

Introduction In contaminated waters, fish may exhibit whole animal, morphological, histopathological, cellular, organismic, or parasitic aspects of abnormalities, some of which can be used as biomarkers of contamination exposure [1–10]. The use of abnormalities in fish as biomarkers has become more prevalent in recent years [6,11–17]. Biomarkers in fish can provide a chronic indication the environmental condition than can more general and acute indices such as plankton analyses or water quality parameters.
However, the cause-and-effect relationships between biomarkers and certain suspected pollutants cannot always be established .

Monit., 2008 Spatial biomonitoring of persistent organic pollutants in Iran: a study using locally produced butter. COST - Agricultural Bio-Markers for Array Technology. Descriptions are provided by the Actions directly via e-COST.
The aim of the Action was to constitute a European network of laboratories with similar interests that collaborate in the evaluation of the suitability of the developed array-products on a pan-European scale. The Action mainly focused on evaluation of the technique for agricultural purposes such as diagnostics, large scale screening and breeding. New strategies for detecting pests and plant pathogens have been developed in order to improve and harmonise the diagnostic procedures within the European Community. To give just one example, the PRI-Lock and Pad-Lock systems, which are under patenting procedure, have been successfully set up. Furthermore, several DNA-based microarrays have been created for pathogen identification, such as plant viruses or bacteria which are among the EPPO list of quarantine species.
Another objective of our Action was to establish a probe database. Also the home page functioned very well.
