In this issue of the newsletter, our lead article is Microplastics: How Big a Threat? by Alice Horton (Research Associate, CEH). Alice explains that since the 1950s the manufacture and use of plastics has seen an enormous increase and has correlated with an increase in the presence of waste plastics in the environment. She gives us an excellent overview of the subject of microplastic pollution and its implications.

Please send us any news items that you would like to see included in our news and events pages.
