  7. Scientists track sharks by picking up DNA fragments from the sea

    Traces of DNA in the sea can be used to monitor shark populations, marine ecologists have shown. Current methods of baiting, hooking and filming sharks, rays and other large fish are invasive and...
  8. New gene-based model suggests, for microbes, it's not who you are but what you do

    A new model simulates the impact of microbial activities on the chemistry in the North Atlantic and suggests that the evolution of a metabolic function rather than the evolution of an individual...
  9. Southern Ocean drives massive bloom of tiny phytoplankton

    Scientists have uncovered the ocean conditions that support a massive summertime bloom of algae that spans 16 percent of the global ocean. Known as the Great Calcite Belt, this dense group of a...
  10. Feces from entangled North Atlantic right whales reveals 'sky-high' stress levels

    North Atlantic right whale scientists found that whales who undergo prolonged entanglements in fishing gear endure 'sky-high hormone levels,' indicating severe stress, which researchers discovered...
  11. Why are there no sea snakes in the Atlantic?

    There is a glaring gap in sea snakes' near-global distribution: the Atlantic Ocean. Biologists chalk up the absence of sea snakes in the Atlantic to geography, climate and timing.

  13. Decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide key to ancient climate transition

    A decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels led to a fundamental shift in the behavior of the Earth's climate system around one million years ago, according to new research led by the...
  14. Less life: Limited phosphorus recycling suppressed early Earth's biosphere

    The amount of biomass -- life -- in Earth's ancient oceans may have been limited due to low recycling of the key nutrient phosphorus, according to new research.
