Keynote: Scaling up marine litter: from cells to ecosystem responses.
The scientific community’s assessments of marine litter has exponentially increased in the last decade. Scale issues are relevant for understanding plastic pollution effects in marine ecosystems, ranging from species to habitats to ecosystems responses. Pilot studies will be discussed highlighting the need for multidisciplinary approaches to address marine litter impacts, especially regarding biodiversity concerns.
