Oil Spills cause catastrophic and persistent damage on enormous scales, and have dramatic consequences for both humans and the environment. Research into the consequences of oil spills is multifaceted and interdisciplinary, from fluid mechanics, chemistry and earth sciences, to developmental biology, ecology and economics. In these Editor's Picks, PLOS ONE Associate Editor in Earth Sciences Vicky Black highlights a variety of PLOS articles showcasing the breadth of research on this topic, from characterising the spills and assessing the impacts of clean-up strategies, to the biological consequences for microbes, humans and whole ecosystems.
