Is space really the final frontier, or are the greatest mysteries closer to home? In cosmology, dark matter is said to account for the majority of mass in the universe, however its presence is inferred by indirect effects ...
New to science: Find from 425 million years ago with body, limbs, eyes, gills and alimentary system preserved
An international team of researchers have made an extremely rare discovery of a species of animal - related to crabs, lobsters and shrimps – that is new to science.
(PhysOrg.com) -- On the marine microbial stage, there appears to be a vast, varied group of understudies only too ready to step in when "star" microbes falter.
New commentary in Nature Reviews Microbiology by Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia and her colleagues argues for further in-depth assessments of the impacts of dispersants on microorganisms to guide their use in ...
New research by the University of Sheffield has warned of the increasing risk of extinction to our marine life.
Public opinion should inform policy decisions about the marine environment, according to a study published this week in the international journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
The ancestors of today's crocodiles colonised the seas during warm phases and became extinct during cold phases, according to a new Anglo-French study which establishes a link between marine crocodilian diversity and the ...
The tiny plastic particles polluting our seas are not only orally ingested by marine creatures, but also enter their systems through their gills, according to a new study led by the University of Exeter.
Microplastics – microscopic particles of plastic debris – are of increasing concern because of their widespread presence in the oceans and the potential physical and toxicological risks they pose to organisms.
