study finds strong support for ocean protection




the public widely believes that the marine environment is under threat from human activities, and supports actions to protect the marine environment in their region, according to a new study to be published in the february issue of the journal ocean and coastal management.



stony corals more resistant to climate change than thought, study finds




stony corals may be more resilient to ocean acidification than once thought, according to a rutgers university study that shows they rely on proteins to help create their rock-hard skeletons.

ocean acidification means major changes for california mussels, researcher says




accelerating ocean acidification could be transforming the fundamental structure of california mussel shells, according to a new report from a florida state university-led team of scientists.



marine reserves help mitigate against climate change, say scientists

could an artificial coral reef protect marine biodiversity against climate chang




climate change from rising levels of carbon dioxide (co2) is having two major effects in our seas – global warming and ocean acidification – and the combination of these threats is affecting marine life from single organisms to species communities.

study finds body size of marine plankton, currents keys to dispersal in ocean




corvallis, ore. - when it comes to marine plankton, the smaller you are the farther you travel.a new international study found that the size of plankton, and the strength and direction of currents, are key to how they are dispersed in the ocean - much more so than physical conditions including diffe...

high temperatures, not ocean acidification, is threatening the growth of coral




the achilles' heel of coral growth is high temperatures, not ocean acidification, according to researchers from the university of western australia and the arc centre of excellence for coral reef studies. the research will be presented tomorrow in canberra at the coral reef futures symposium.

study urges global-change researchers to embrace variability




scientists typically make every effort to keep all factors but one constant when doing an experiment. global-change scientists might move a coral from a reef to an aquarium whose water is held 1°c higher to test the effects of the ocean warming predicted for the end of the century. or they might de...



dead zones may threaten coral reefs worldwide




dead zones affect dozens of coral reefs around the world and threaten hundreds more according to a new study by smithsonian scientists published in proceedings of the national academy of sciences. watching a massive coral reef die-off on the caribbean coast of panama, they suspected it was caused by...



pacific island countries could lose 50 - 80% of fish in local waters under clima




many pacific island nations will lose 50 to 80 percent of marine species in their waters by the end of the 21st century if climate change continues unchecked, finds a new nippon foundation-nereus program study published in marine policy. this area of the ocean is projected to be the most severely im...

'weedy' fish species to take over our future oceans




credit: cc0 public domainuniversity of adelaide researchers have for the first time demonstrated that the ocean acidification expected in the future will reduce fish diversity significantly, with small 'weedy' species dominating marine environments. published today in current biology, the researcher...



seaside sparrows caught between predators and rising seas




sea-level rise may be a big problem for saltmarsh birds, but so is predation, and birds sometimes find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place: they can place their nests lower in the vegetation to avoid predators, putting them at greater risk of flooding, or move them up to keep them dry ...



long term n & p reduces vegetation species and carbon storage in upland soil




reactive nitrogen (n) deposition can affect ecosystem processes, particularly in oligotrophic upland habitats. phosphorus (p) addition has been proposed to reduce the effects of n enrichment on n leaching and acidification, since p limitation can reduce biomass production and consequent sequestratio...
