We seem to have a bias toward larger things. No hoaxsters ever claim to have seen a Littlefoot running around the woods of Tennessee. And because species are in a range of sizes, comparisons of marine species can be hit-and-miss.
"The most extensive living coral reef in the United States is adjacent to the island chain of the Florida Keys. The Florida Reef Tract which extends from Soldier Key, located in Biscayne Bay, to the ...
Scientists say new channel will herald arrival of more invasive species, with potentially harmful impact on region as a wholeThe continuing expansion of the Suez canal risks causing serious harm to marine lifeforms and economic activity in the...
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.
Mollusks are found in virtually all habitats, including the extremes of the tropics, deserts, and the Arctic – on land, in freshwater, in the oceans and even in deep-ocean thermal vents and cold seeps.
The following post is authored by Catherine Chen as part of the Sizing Ocean Giants project. This post originally occurred on the Story of Size. Sixty million times. That’s really big, but just how big?
Research into the sediment-dwelling marine life in deep-sea canyons, by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), may help to predict how marine ecosystems will respond to human disturbance of the ocean, such as deep-sea mining and trawling.
The MarineBio Conservation Society (MarineBio) is a nonprofit organization staffed by volunteer marine biologists, students, professors, and conservation advocates working to share the wonders of the ocean realm inspiring marine science education,...
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
A research group has revealed how a seemingly simple animal is able to produce nerve cells throughout its entire body. The study shows that the stem cells that a sea anemone uses to generate its nervous system are more similar to those of humans than expected.
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.
