Increasing tourism and the spread of marine invasive non-native species is threatening the unique plant and marine life around the Galapagos Islands.
Researchers have identified areas off southern California with high numbers of whales and assessed their risk from potentially deadly collisions with commercial ship traffic in a study published in the scientific journal ...
(Phys.org) —Catching rides on cargo ships and fishing boats, many invasive species are now covering our shorelines and compromising the existence of our native marine life.
Imagine trying to pitch a tent in a stiff wind. You just have it secured, when a gale lifts the tent—stakes and all—and carries it away.
(Phys.org) —A ground-breaking new study challenges popular assumptions about the feeding behaviour of the world's largest predatory fish, the white shark.
Marine biologists say they have proof that excessive trawling of small fish species leads to proliferation of jellyfish, a worsening phenomenon whose causes have been unclear.
Cryptic comments seem to have an ambiguous, obscure or hidden meaning. In biology, cryptic species are outwardly indistinguishable groups whose differences are hidden inside their genes.
(Phys.org) —It was often assumed marine plankton would be easy prey, especially in the dense viscosity of colder waters, but that is not necessarily so.
(Phys.org)—The discovery of two sharks never seen before in Australian waters is set to re-write scientists' understanding of the species.
