4. Consumption of field-realistic doses of a widely used mito-toxic fungicide reduces thorax mass but does not negatively impact flight capacities of the honey bee (Apis mellifera).

Commercial beekeepers in many locations are experiencing increased annual colony losses of honey bees (Apis mellifera), but the causes, including the role of agrochemicals in colony losses, remain unclear. In this study, we investigated the effects of chronic consumption of pollen containing a...

7. Differential impact of dose-range glyphosate on locomotor behavior, neuronal activity, glio-cerebrovascular structures, and transcript regulations in zebrafish larvae.

The presence of glyphosate represents a debated ecotoxicological and health risk factor. Here, zebrafish larvae were exposed, from 1.5 to 120 h post-fertilization, to a broad concentration range (0.05-10.000 μg/L) of glyphosate to explore its impact on the brain. We evaluated morphology, tracked...
