Re-Establishing Oyster Beds to Maximize Their Ecological Benefits

Feb. 11, 2019 — Researchers have developed a mapping tool that identifies sites for re-establishing oyster reefs that maximize their ecological benefits -- such as water filtration. This Geographic Information ... read more

Feb. 6, 2019 — A new study provides the first record of the diving behavior of Cuvier's beaked whales in US Atlantic waters. The species is Earth's deepest-diving mammal but spends very little recovery ... read more

Feb. 6, 2019 — Variations in a single gene in a tiny fish alter how they interact with their environment. The study represents a strategy for uncovering, and perhaps even predicting, the ecological implications of ... read more

Feb. 6, 2019 — Corals lurking in deeper, darker waters could one day help to replenish shallow water reefs under threat from ocean warming and bleaching events, according to researchers. They examined corals from ... read more

Underwater Forests Threatened by Future Climate Change, New Study Finds

Feb. 6, 2019 — Climate change could lead to declines of underwater kelp forests through impacts on their microbiome. New research has found predicted ocean warming and acidification can change microbes on the kelp ... read more

Differences in Water Temperature Can Create New Marine Species

Feb. 5, 2019 — Warm and cool water temperatures over a long stretch of coastline cause new species of marine fish to evolve without being isolated from similar types of fish nearby, according to a new international ... read more

New Islands, Happy Feet: Study Reveals Island Formation a Key Driver of Penguin Speciation

Feb. 5, 2019 — Ever since Darwin first set foot on the Galapagos, evolutionary biologists have long known that the geographic isolation of archipelagos has helped spur the formation of new species. Now, an ... read more

Feb. 5, 2019 — Considering that light is the driving force behind the growth and productivity of reef ecosystems, scientists are interested in understanding the relationship between primary productivity and varying ... read more

Feb. 4, 2019 — The observed population crash in a colony of sooty terns, tropical seabirds in one of the UK Overseas Territories, is partly due to poor diet, research has ... read more

Feb. 1, 2019 — Around 635 to 720 million years ago, Earth was twice almost completely covered by ice. The question of how life survived these 'Snowball Earth' glaciations has puzzled scientists for many ... read more

Jan. 31, 2019 — Climate change is bad news for coral reefs around the world, with high ocean temperatures causing widespread bleaching events that weaken and kill corals. However, new research has found that corals ... read more

Factors in 'Alarming Rate' of Cold-Stranded Sea Turtles in Cape Cod Bay

Jan. 31, 2019 — A recent study looked into what variables are most important in predicting the number of cold-stunning and stranding events among juvenile Kemp's ridley sea turtles in Cape Cod ... read more

Jan. 31, 2019 — Warmer water temperatures, combined with low-level exposure to chemicals already known to be harmful to aquatic life, influence the expression of genes in the offspring of an abundant North American ... read more

Jan. 31, 2019 — A scavenger study that used fish carcasses as bait provides additional evidence that wildlife is abundant in the Chernobyl Exclusion ... read more

Jan. 31, 2019 — A new study suggests that the membrane of salmon eggs may evolve to cope with reduced oxygen levels in rivers, thereby helping their embryos to incubate ... read more

Transitioning Old Oil Rigs Into Permanent Reefs

Jan. 31, 2019 — Offshore oil platforms have an immense presence, physically, financially and environmentally. Some 6,000 rigs pump petroleum and natural gas worldwide. But as they extract hydrocarbons from deep ... read more

Plastic in Britain's Seals, Dolphins and Whales

Jan. 31, 2019 — Microplastics have been found in the guts of every marine mammal examined in a new study of animals washed up on Britain's ... read more
