Researchers discover how cavefish use sound in their dark subterranean world.
Beautiful walk meanders through a salty forest, habitat for bird, reptile, fish, insect, crustacean, mollusc and mammal species.
“The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from US Consulate at Bergen Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto […]
The ocean is there to be discovered and Steve Brady is an intrepid diver who has explored many underwater locations with a salty tale to tell. “We’ve got it all and there’s just so much diversity of marine life in and around Australia. It’s amazing” Brady says. “This is probably a funny thing to say […]
Have you ever thought of using sound to navigate through the landscape? A team of scientists convert sound into a spectrum of coded colour bands to decipher hidden clues about the environment. Their work is making waves in ecology circles, with the identification of species so cryptic, trained specialists can’t spot them in the field. […]
Warming of the oceans is a reality with Arctic and Antarctic Sea Ice melting at a rapid rate. Rising sea levels already affect many island nations and the coastlines of different countries will soon experience increasing shifts in the shoreline toward the land. The rate of environmental change though is often assumed to be something […]
Viruses have dominated the microscopic world of the oceans for billions of years and researchers find it difficult to track and isolate their activities because they are invisible to the naked eye. But science has finally caught up with these tiny vectors of change, says Marine researcher, Dr Karen Weynburg, a Synthetic Biology Fellow at […]
