Story of bizarre deep-sea bone worm takes unexpected twist: Evolutionary reversal previously unseen in animal kingdom | marine biology | Scoop.it
The saga of the Osedax “bone-eating” worms began 12 years ago, with the first discovery of these deep-sea creatures that feast on the bones of dead animals. The Osedax story grew even stranger when researchers found that the large female worms contained harems of tiny dwarf males.

Bioluminescence as method of assessing fish stocks

Bioluminescence as method of assessing fish stocks | marine biology | Scoop.it
A promising new method of forecasting bioluminescence, which may improve the monitoring of movements in the ocean, such as fish shoals and internal waves, has been outlined by experts. As fish move through the sea they churn the water around them. This movement disturbs  the bioluminescent organisms, triggering a chemical reaction that emits a flash of light. The combined flashes of hundreds of thousands of organisms give the impression of a constant glow of blue light, which Aristotle termed ‘f

Biology trumps chemistry in open ocean: How phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus

Biology trumps chemistry in open ocean: How phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus | marine biology | Scoop.it
Scientists laid out a new framework based on in situ observations that will allow them to describe and understand how phytoplankton assimilate limited concentrations of phosphorus, a key nutrient, in the ocean in ways that better reflect what is actually occurring in the marine environment. This is important because nutrient uptake is a property of ocean biogeochemistry, and in many regions controls carbon dioxide fixation, which ultimately can play a role in mitigating climate change.
