Two marine biologists have found a red algae species that resembles a branching coral.
(Phys.org) —Wastewater treatment lagoons have the potential to serve as a local energy source, according to a Clarkson University doctoral student.
(Phys.org) —Oregon State University scientists have discovered how to pinpoint the time and place of underwater volcanic eruptions using satellite images.
Imagine a creature so slothful that it snacks off its own fur and budges only once a week for a bowel movement.
A study of marine life in the temperate coastal waters of the northeast Pacific Ocean shows a reversal of competitive dominance among species of algae, suggesting that increased ocean acidification caused by global climate ...
Biofuel researchers have dramatically improved microalgae hydrocarbon productivity by using non-destructive extraction, akin to 'milking' algal cells as opposed to the conventional harvest and destruction.
The species historically cited as the most abundant of coral algae that forms rodoliths at the Gulf of California in Mexico is in reality a compound of five different species. This finding was made by Jazmín Hernández Kantun, ...
Pioneering research led by Indiana University has identified genes from a number of plant species, including the entire mitochondrial genomes from three green algae and one moss, in the mitochondrial genome of Amborella trichopoda. ...
Engineers have created a continuous chemical process that produces useful crude oil minutes after they pour in harvested algae – a verdant green paste with the consistency of pea soup.
Ocean waters warming from climate change are placing coral reefs in jeopardy, but a new discovery suggests that two similar-looking coral species differ in how they survive.
