. Do biofilm communities respond to the chemical signatures of fracking? A test involving streams in North-central Arkansas. BMC Microbiol. 2017;17:29 pubmed publisher
..Study streams must be carefully categorized with regard to the magnitude and extent of anthropogenic impacts. They must also be segregated with statistical confidence (as herein) before fracking impacts are monitored. ..

Kolian S, Sammarco P, Porter S. Abundance of Corals on Offshore Oil and Gas Platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Environ Manage. 2017;60:357-366 pubmed publisher
..We recommend that structures located in deeper waters should be surveyed for coral and, if the populations are substantial, consider alternate uses for the retired platforms, and leaving them in place, when feasible. ..
Whitworth K, Marshall A, Symanski E. Maternal residential proximity to unconventional gas development and perinatal outcomes among a diverse urban population in Texas. PLoS ONE. 2017;12:e0180966 pubmed publisher
..Our results are suggestive of an association between maternal residential proximity to UGD-activity and preterm birth and fetal death. Quantifying chemical and non-chemical stressors among residents near UGD should be prioritized. ..
