The use of nanomaterials is now widespread and therefore it isexpected that they will eventually end up in the environment.  The environmental effects of nanomaterials are now widely investigated on a wide range of organisms and endpoints. Nevertheless there is still much lack of information on their effects on multi-species systems and ecosystem services. In this presentation the effects of nanomaterials in multi-species  systems is exhaustively analysed and reported and an assessment on the importance and suitability of ecosystem-level studies evaluated.
