Warming can cause low oxygen, or hypoxia, in many habitats in the ocean. Under high future emission scenarios, hypoxia may…
A "microbiosphere" could be engineered to introduce plastic-degrading bacteria to marine plastic pollution, but many questions still remain.
How are adult and larval oysters sensitive to ocean acidification and warming?
How do marine heat wave temperatures affect larval gastropods, and what does this mean for an emerging shellfishery?
Global ocean warming is predicted to have negative impacts on ocean animals living in the middle of the food web.
How do benthic communities help stabilize the sediment and prevent erosion?
Deep-sea snails obtain bacterial symbionts from the surrounding environment, allowing them to survive in harsh environments
How does ocean acidification affect shark teeth?
Is climate change causing problems for those tiny crustaceans?
How does infection with parasites influence levels of Vibrio bacteria in oysters?
How does climate change and plastic chemical additives affect marine organisms?
Lack of oxygen for a long period of time is bad for oysters, but is that the whole story?
How does kelp harvesting affect kelp populations? How can scientists use this information to better inform management policies?
Heat and UV radiation can kill COVID-19 viral particles on beaches, so taking a trip to the beach is a…
Microplastics (specifically microfibers) can adhere to the cell walls of the green algae Cladophora, potentially removing them from the water.
Marine heat waves are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change, and can have negative effects on invertebrate…
Do pesticides negatively affect the polyp life stage of moon jellies? Evidence suggests no, at least for tested pesticides.
Biodegradable nets are a potential solution to the ghost fishing problem-or the phenomenon of lost fishing nets still catching animals.…
Filter feeding animals like oysters can be exposed to small plastic particles, called microplastics, as they filter food out of…
