    Description: Nanoparticles serve various industrial and domestic purposes which is reflected in their steadily increasing production volume. This economic success comes along with their presence in the environment and the risk of potentially adverse effects in natural systems. Over the last decade, substantial progress regarding the understanding of sources, fate, and effects of nanoparticles has been made. Predictions of environmental concentrations based on modelling approaches could recently be confirmed by measured concentrations in the field. Nonetheless, analytical techniques are, as covered elsewhere, still under development to more efficiently and reliably characterize and quantify nanoparticles, as well as to detect them in complex environmental matrixes. Simultaneously, the effects of nanoparticles on aquatic and terrestrial systems have received increasing attention. While the debate on the relevance of nanoparticle-released metal ions for their toxicity is still ongoing, it is a re-occurring phenomenon that inert nanoparticles are able to interact with biota through physical pathways such as biological surface coating. This among others interferes with the growth and behaviour of exposed organisms. Moreover, co-occurring contaminants interact with nanoparticles. There is multiple evidence suggesting nanoparticles as a sink for organic and inorganic co-contaminants. On the other hand, in the presence of nanoparticles, repeatedly an elevated effect on the test species induced by the co-contaminants has been reported. In this paper, we highlight recent achievements in the field of nano-ecotoxicology in both aquatic and terrestrial systems but also refer to substantial gaps that require further attention in the future.

    Description: This report provides a brief review of the 16 th annual meeting of the German Language Branch of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC GLB) held from September 18th to 20th 2011 at the University Koblenz-Landau at Campus Landau. The event was organized by Carsten Brühl and Ralf B. Schäfer and many members and students of the Institute for Environmental Sciences under the main theme “EcoTOXICOlogy and Environmental CHEMISTRY: Crossing borders”. Almost 300 participants enjoyed the scientific program that included 54 oral and 70 poster presentations under seven session themes. In addition, four invited keynote speakers and a plenary discussion on biodiversity with representatives from government, academia and industry provided new insights. The best oral and poster presentations of the meeting were awarded together with the annual young scientist award of SETAC GLB for the best diploma and doctoral thesis. The proceedings of the meeting (mostly in German) including the program and all abstracts is freely available as Supplemental Material. Dieser Bericht gibt einen kurzen Rückblick auf die 16. Jahrestagung der Deutschsprachigen Abteilung der Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC GLB) vom 18. bis 20. September 2011 an der Universität Koblenz-Landau am Campus Landau. Die Tagung wurde hauptverantwortlich durch Carsten Brühl und Ralf B. Schäfer mit Unterstützung von zahlreichen Mitarbeitern und Studierenden des Instituts für Umweltwissenschaften unter dem Hauptthema “: Grenzen überwinden Ökotoxikologie und Umweltchemie” organisiert. Fast 300 Teilnehmer genossen das wissenschaftliche Programms das 54 Vorträge und 70 Posterbeiträge in sieben Sessions beinhaltete. Darüber hinaus lieferten vier eingeladenen Hauptredner und eine Podiumsdiskussion zur Biodiversität mit Vertretern aus Behörden, Wissenschaft und Industrie neue Erkenntnisse. Die besten Vorträge und Posterbeiträge der Tagung wurden zusammen mit dem jährlichen Young Scientist Award der SETAC GLB für die beste Diplom-und Doktorarbeit ausgezeichnet. Das Tagungsprogramm mit den Kurzzusammenfassungen ist als ergänzendes Material frei verfügbar.
