Keynote: The impacts of microplastics on Mediterranean biodiversity.

The Mediterranean Sea is home to a exceptional diversity of habitats and species. Due to the multiple sources of pollution and different environmental compartments to be monitored, it is essential to develop a harmonized methodology approach to detect the impact of ML and MPs at basin scale to preserve Mediterranean biodiversity. The Plastic Busters Initiative, kick-started in 2013 in Siena, was born to address scientific gaps and to bind together the monitoring efforts on many habitats and species, including marine protected areas (MPAs) and endangered species.
