Hook & loop action of fibrous microplastics

Like the Velcro in your sandals, zooplankton became entangled by fibrous microplastics through a mechanism akin to "hook and loop" action. Our paper, "Entanglement of Daphnia magna by Fibrous Microplastics Through 'Hook and Loop' Action," authored by Cuizhu Ma, Huahong Shi, and Vera I. Slaveykova, has been featured as the inaugural "Editor's Choice" in Environmental Science and Technology Letters  and selected as one of the American Chemical Society - ACS Editor's Choice papers.
