Chong P, Erable B, Bergel A. How bacteria use electric fields to reach surfaces. Biofilm. 2021 Apr 8;3:100048. doi: 10.1016/j.bioflm.2021.100048. PMID: 33997766; PMCID: PMC8090995. Abstract Electrotaxis is the property of cells to sense electric fields and use them to orient their displacement. This property has been widely investigated with eukaryotic cells but it remains unclear...

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marenvres.2020.104888 Abstract Electromagnetic surveys generate electromagnetic fields to map petroleum deposits under the seabed with unknown consequences for marine animals. The electric and magnetic fields induced by electromagnetic surveys can be detected by many marine animals, and the generated fields may potentially affect the behavior of perceptive animals. Animals using magnetic cues for migration or...
