In 2022, Ecotoxicology and Environmental Contamination - EEC, a scientific journal belonging to the Brazilian Society of Ecotoxicology (ECOTOX-Brasil), originally called Journal of the Brazilian Society of Ecotoxicology (JBSE), celebrates its 17th anniversary. To continue promoting and expanding spaces for scientific dialogue, we initiated a new journal format with new sections and the opportunity to submit articles in both Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English. The EEC editorial team greatly appreciates Dr. Charrid Resgalla’s dedication and effort as the head of the EEC in recent years. We are also grateful to the contribution of all associate editors in the editing of this volume. To remember EEC’s history, we have invited senior editor Gilberto Fillmann to inaugurate our editorial.
