Fish type, body size can help predict nutrient recycling rates

Fish type, body size can help predict nutrient recycling rates | marine biology | Scoop.it
The nutrients excreted by fish in their 'pee' may be critical to the health of coastal ecosystems. But knowing whether generalizations can be made about how to predict these nutrient levels in various ecosystems has vexed researchers -- until now.
Gaye Rosier's insight:

"The findings suggest that body size and taxonomic identity are the most important factors to predict the amount of nutrients that fish recycle to the environment,"

First European sea turtles became extinct due to changing sea levels

First European sea turtles became extinct due to changing sea levels | marine biology | Scoop.it
Little is known about the oldest sea turtles that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. The finding in the Baetic Cordillera, in Jaén, of the remains of a supposed new species of turtle, Hispaniachelys prebetica - considered the oldest in southern Europe - brought new clues six years ago. However, it was still not clear what group the primitive turtle belonged to. To resolve the matter, researchers studied the as-yet-unanalyzed fossils of the specimen, reinterpreted some of its features and

Coexisting in a sea of competition

Coexisting in a sea of competition | marine biology | Scoop.it
Diversity of life abounds on Earth, and there's no need to look any farther than the ocean's surface for proof. There are over 200,000 species of phytoplankton alone, and all of those species of microscopic marine plants that form the base of the marine food web need the same basic resources to grow -- light and nutrients. A new reveals how species of diatoms--one of the several major types of marine phytoplankton--use resources in different ways to coexist in the same community.
Gaye Rosier's insight:

"Why are there so many different species coexisting in this relatively stable environment, when they're competing for the same resources? Why hasn't a top competitor forced others into extinction?"
