    Oxybenzone - benzophenone-3 - acropora tenuis - Stylophora pistillata - Climate change - PSII yeild - microbiome
    Coral bleaching due to global warming currently is the largest threat to coral reefs, which may be exacerbated by altered water quality. Elevated levels of the UV filter oxybenzone in coastal waters as a result of sunscreen use have recently been demonstrated. We studied the effect of chronic oxybenzone exposure and elevated water temperature on coral health. Microcolonies of Stylophora pistillata and Acropora tenuis were cultured in 20 flow-through aquaria, of which 10 were exposed to oxybenzone at a field-relevant concentration of ~0.06 μg L−1 at 26 °C. After two weeks, half of the corals experienced a heat wave culminating at 33 °C. All S. pistillata colonies survived the heat wave, although heat reduced growth and zooxanthellae density, irrespective of oxybenzone. Acropora tenuis survival decreased to 0% at 32 °C, and oxybenzone accelerated mortality. Oxybenzone and heat significantly impacted photosynthetic yield in both species, causing a 5% and 22–33% decrease, respectively. In addition, combined oxybenzone and temperature stress altered the abundance of five bacterial families in the microbiome of S. pistillata. Our results suggest that oxybenzone adds insult to injury by further weakening corals in the face of global warming.
    Convention on biological diversity : Sixth national report of the Kingdom of the Netherlands

    The Netherlands is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Most of the country’s land area is highly productive agricultural land. There is little or no area of natural ecosystem that could be called pristine,although high biodiversity values are certainly found. TheKingdom of the Netherlands also comprises six Caribbeanislands with, among other things, tropical rainforests,mangrove forests and coral reefs. The main cause of the long-term decline biodiversity has been the intensification of agricultural production, including the reclamation of semi-natural areas, the drainage of wet areas, the use of artificial fertilizer, etc. But also unsustainable fishing,pollution, overgrazing, climate change and invasive alien species cause a decline in biodiversity. To reverse this decline, the Netherlands has prepared and implemented action plans and targets for biodiversity since 1990. This report presents the most important efforts to achieve the biodiversity targets.

    An environmental risk assessment of three organic UV-filters at Lac Bay, Bonaire, Southern Caribbean

    Although organic UV filters (OUVFs) benefit human health by preventing skin burns and cancer, several studies revealed that organic UV filters can induce developmental and reproductive toxicity to aquatic organisms. Discharge of OUVFs occurs predominantly at marine recreational hotspots, such as Lac Bay, Bonaire, and is predicted to increase significantly due to growing tourism worldwide. Unfortunately, there is no insight what the current and future discharge of OUVF at Lac Bay is. Therefore, this study aimed to 1) measure concentrations and estimate the risk of specific OUVFs to different nursery habitats at Lac Bay, and 2) compare measured and predicted concentration based risk assessment outcome. Results showed that at least one of the three nurseries at Lac Bay had a potential for adverse effects. Furthermore, predicted environmental concentrations of UV filter discharge can be applied to gain more insight in the order of extent of OUVF discharge by marine tourism.
