Sex in the Caribbean: Environmental change drives evolutionary change -- eventually

Sex in the Caribbean: Environmental change drives evolutionary change -- eventually | To use in my lessons | Scoop.it
Hungry, sexual organisms replaced well-fed, clonal organisms in the Caribbean Sea as the Isthmus of Panama arose, separating the Caribbean from the Pacific, report researchers from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The fossil record shows that if a species could shift from clonal to sexual reproduction it survived. Otherwise it was destined for extinction, millions of years later.

Endangered corals smothered by sponges on overfished Caribbean reefs

Endangered corals smothered by sponges on overfished Caribbean reefs | To use in my lessons | Scoop.it
For reef-building corals, sponges do not make good neighbors. Aggressive competitors for space, sponges use toxins, mucus, shading, and smothering to kill adjacent coral colonies and then grow on their skeletons. A recent survey of coral reefs across the Caribbean shows that overfishing removes the predators of sponges, greatly increasing the threat of fast-growing sponges to an already diminished population of corals.

Shipwrecks, tree rings reveal Caribbean hurricanes in buccaneer era

Shipwrecks, tree rings reveal Caribbean hurricanes in buccaneer era | To use in my lessons | Scoop.it
Records of Spanish shipwrecks combined with tree-ring records show the period 1645 to 1715 had the fewest Caribbean hurricanes since 1500, according to new University of Arizona-led research. The study is the first to use shipwrecks as a proxy for hurricane activity. The researchers found a 75 percent reduction in the number of Caribbean hurricanes from 1645-1715, a time that had little sunspot activity and cool temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere.
