The EMERGEMIX project will use environmentally relevant mixtures of silver nanoparticles, Nplas and ciprofloxacin to expand our knowledge on their effects on species and communities from freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems, using parameters at different biological organization levels. This will contribute to identify biomarkers of stress, elucidate the mechanisms of action and interaction between emerging chemical contaminants (ECCs), and determine toxicity to organisms, populations and communities, ultimately contributing to improve the bases of environmental risk assessment and safety in the use of ECCs.
