Description:"The purpose of the workshop was to bring together environmental research scientists from around the world to discuss the impacts of microplastic interactions and ingestion to marine species, the connection with contaminant uptake by organisms, and to outline the potential next steps in microplastic research. The workshop format combined presentations, breakout groups, and participant discussions during two days of meetings. Thirty two individuals participated in the workshop, representing academic, industrial, private, policy and governmental sectors. Fourteen oral presentations included research on such broad-ranging topics as the oceanography of the North Pacific, the ingestion of microplastics by marine invertebrates, and persistent organic pollutants in marine plastic debris. All fourteen presentations are included here, with abstracts and slides as deemed appropriated by the presenters"--Preface.
