Epidermal lesions and mortality caused by vibriosis in deep-sea Bahamian echinoids: a laboratory study. (1/71)

When significant mortality of the bathyal spatangoid echinoid Paleopneustes cristatus occurred under laboratory conditions, we investigated the cause and course of the disease by culturing and identifying internal pathogens, then experimentally infecting healthy urchins with isolates of the suspected disease organism. The pathogen was determined to be the gram-negative halophilic bacterium Vibrio alginolyticus. This species was also recovered from frozen post-challenge specimens of P. cristatus and from moribund individuals of Archaeopneustes hystrix, another spatangoid reared under similar in vitro conditions. This is the first experimental study of bacterial disease in any deep-sea invertebrate.  (+info)

Natural restoration of the species-area relation for a lizard after a hurricane. (2/71)

We document the decimation and recovery of the commonest lizard species, Anolis sagrei, on 66 islands in the Bahamas that were directly hit by Hurricane Floyd in September 1999. Before the hurricane, an island's area was a better predictor of the occurrence of A. sagrei than was its altitude. Immediately after, altitude was a better predictor: Apparently all lizards on islands lower than about 3 meters maximum elevation perished in the storm surge. After about 1 year, area again became the better predictor. By 19 months after the hurricane, A. sagrei populations occurred on 88% of the islands they formerly occupied. Recovery occurred via overwater colonization and propagation from eggs that survived inundation, mechanisms that were enhanced by larger island area. Thus, natural processes first destroyed and then quickly restored a highly regular species-area distribution.  (+info)

The breeding biology of lemon sharks at a tropical nursery lagoon. (3/71)

Surprisingly little is known about the reproductive behaviour and breeding biology of most shark species, especially in natural populations. Here, we characterize reproductive patterns and use of a natal nursery at Bimini, Bahamas by lemon sharks, Negaprion brevirostris. We systematically and exhaustively sampled young lemon sharks at Bimini annually from 1995 to 2000 and opportunistically sampled adults over the same period. Out of the 897 young sharks sampled, 119 could be assigned to five sampled mothers using microsatellite genotyping. Reproductive females showed strong philopatry to the nursery, returning to Bimini every two years to give birth. Each of these females may rely entirely on the Bimini nursery for recruitment. The protection of known nursery grounds should therefore figure prominently in conservation efforts for large coastal shark species. The reconstruction of paternal genotypes indicates that litters are sired by multiple males, and females mate with different males nearly every breeding cycle. The ubiquitous polyandry reported here raises the possibility that genetic incompatibility and post-copulatory paternity-biasing mechanisms may operate in viviparous sharks.  (+info)

Genetic evidence for local retention of pelagic larvae in a Caribbean reef fish. (4/71)

The pelagic larvae of many marine organisms can potentially disperse across hundreds of kilometers, but whether oceanographic or behavioral mechanisms can constrain dispersal over periods sufficient for the evolution of genetic differentiation remains unclear. Here, we concurrently examine larval duration and genetic population differentiation in a cleaner goby, Elacatinus evelynae, a member of the most species-rich genus of Caribbean reef fishes. Despite evidence for extended pelagic duration (21 days), populations of E. evelynae show strong genetic differentiation: among color forms (1.36 to 3.04% divergent at mitochondrial cytochrome b) and among island populations within color forms (Phi(ST) up to 70%). These results suggest that marine populations can remain demographically closed for thousands of generations despite extended larval duration, and that recognition cues such as color may promote speciation when geographic barriers are transient or weak.  (+info)

Persistence of Mhc heterozygosity in homozygous clonal killifish, Rivulus marmoratus: implications for the origin of hermaphroditism. (5/71)

The mangrove killifish Rivulus marmoratus, a neotropical fish in the order Cyprinodontiformes, is the only known obligatorily selfing, synchronous hermaphroditic vertebrate. To shed light on its population structure and the origin of hermaphroditism, major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) class I genes of the killifish from seven different localities in Florida, Belize, and the Bahamas were cloned and sequenced. Thirteen loci and their alleles were identified and classified into eight groups. The loci apparently arose approximately 20 million years ago (MYA) by gene duplications from a single common progenitor in the ancestors of R. marmoratus and its closest relatives. Distinct loci were found to be restricted to different populations and different individuals in the same population. Up to 44% of the fish were heterozygotes at Mhc loci, as compared to near homozygosity at non-Mhc loci. Large genetic distances between some of the Mhc alleles revealed the presence of ancestral allelic lineages. Computer simulation designed to explain these findings indicated that selfing is incomplete in R. marmoratus populations, that Mhc allelic lineages must have diverged before the onset of selfing, and that the hermaphroditism arose in a population containing multiple ancestral Mhc lineages. A model is proposed in which hermaphroditism arose stage-wise by mutations, each of which spread through the entire population and was fixed independently in the emerging clones.  (+info)

Seaweed resistance to microbial attack: a targeted chemical defense against marine fungi. (6/71)

Pathogenic microbes can devastate populations of marine plants and animals. Yet, many sessile organisms such as seaweeds and sponges suffer remarkably low levels of microbial infection, despite lacking cell-based immune systems. Antimicrobial defenses of marine organisms are largely uncharacterized, although from a small number of studies it appears that chemical defenses may improve host resistance. In this study, we asked whether the common seaweed Lobophora variegata is chemically defended against potentially deleterious microorganisms. Using bioassay-guided fractionation, we isolated and characterized a 22-membered cyclic lactone, lobophorolide (1), of presumed polyketide origin, with sub-microM activity against pathogenic and saprophytic marine fungi. Deterrent concentrations of 1 were found in 46 of 51 samples collected from 10 locations in the Bahamas over a 4-year period. Lobophorolide (1) is structurally unprecedented, yet parts of the molecule are related to tolytoxin, the scytophycins, and the swinholides, macrolides previously isolated from terrestrial cyanobacteria and from marine sponges and gastropods. Until now, compounds of this structural class have not been associated with marine macrophytes. Our findings suggest that seaweeds use targeted antimicrobial chemical defense strategies and that secondary metabolites important in the ecological interactions between marine macroorganisms and microorganisms could be a promising source of novel bioactive compounds.  (+info)

Determinate growth and modularity in a gorgonian octocoral. (7/71)

Growth rates of branches of colonies of the gorgonian Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae were monitored for 2 years on a reef at San Salvador Island, Bahamas. Images of 261 colonies were made at 6-month intervals and colony and branch growth analyzed. Branch growth rates differed between colonies and between the time intervals in which the measurements were made. Colonies developed a plumelike morphology through a pattern of branch origination and determinate growth in which branch growth rates were greatest at the time the branch originated and branches seldom grew beyond a length of 8 cm. A small number of branches had greater growth rates, did not stop growing, and were sites for the origination of subsequent "generations" of branches. The rate of branch origination decreased with each generation of branching, and branch growth rates were lower on larger colonies, leading to determinate colony growth. Although colonial invertebrates like P. elisabethae grow through the addition of polyps, branches behave as modules with determinate growth. Colony form and size is generated by the iterative addition of branches.  (+info)

Variable ecological effects of hurricanes: the importance of seasonal timing for survival of lizards on Bahamian islands. (8/71)

Two recent hurricanes passed directly over the northern Bahamas 2 years apart, allowing a comparison of their effects on lizard populations inhabiting exactly the same islands. The hurricanes differed in two ways: one struck during the reproductive season and was relatively severe; the other struck after most reproduction had taken place and was milder. The late-season hurricane produced a significant relation between population reduction and lowness of the island that lasted at least through two seasons; the earlier hurricane produced no such relationship. The late-season hurricane wiped out populations of lizards on two islands (two of the three lowest) that the earlier hurricane failed to exterminate even though it was stronger. We relate these effects to the fact that the study lizards regenerated from the earlier hurricane only via the egg stage, whereas eggs were unavailable when the later storm struck and regeneration was via hatched lizards. We discriminate and illustrate four kinds of hurricanes, cross-classified by two contrasts: earlier vs. later and stronger vs. weaker. A later, stronger hurricane completely exterminated lizard populations at a second Bahamian site, whereas an earlier, weaker hurricane had no detectable effect at a third Bahamian site. We suggest that, in addition to severity, the timing of a hurricane as it coincides with reproductive scheduling or other phenological aspects may determine the magnitude of its effect on a variety of organisms.  (+info)

Much of the diversity of dive options offered by The Bahamas is a direct result of the huge area that this nation covers. With its westernmost islands resting only 50 miles off the Florida coastline, The Bahamas stretches southeast over 750 miles. Contained within its boundaries are more than 100,000 square miles of water, dwarfing a land mass of a mere 5,382 square miles. This land mass is distributed between 25 islands or island groups, more than 650 cays (pronounced keys ) and some 2,400 islets and exposed rocks. There are active, professional dive operations on well over a dozen of these islands. Areas beyond reach of day boats and land-based operations are made accessible by a fleet of high-quality live-aboards, departing both from the United States and from strategic jumping-off points within The Bahamas. The Bahamas owes its very existence to the ocean and its creatures. The archipelago sits upon a platform of pure limestone that was created by marine sediment deposited over the millennia ...

Marine deposits at +20 ± 3 m on the tectonically stable coastlines of Bermuda and the Bahamas support the hypothesis of a partial collapse of the Antarctic ice sheet during the middle Pleistocene. Beach sediments fill a sea cave at +22 m in Bermuda, and horizontal, fenestrae-filled beds crop out on platforms at two sites as high as +21 m in Eleuthera, Bahamas. Carbonate beach sands are bound by an early generation of isopachous fibrous cement that is characteristic of a phreatic marine environment. Amino acid racemization and TIMS (thermal-ionization mass spectrometry) dates constrain the age of the deposits to between 390 and 550 ka, while proxy evidence supports a correlation with oxygen isotope stage 11. This direct geologic evidence of a 20% decrease in polar ice during the middle Pleistocene has important implications for the stability of ice sheets during warm interglaciations. ...

NASSAU, Bahamas - Health officials in the Bahamas are screening illegal immigrants for malaria after an outbreak of the potentially fatal disease was confirmed on a sandy chain of islands southeast of Nassau. Dr Merceline Dahl-Regis, the governments chief medical officer, has identified the strain of malaria on the Exumas as plasmodium falciparum. Officials have also been screening immigrants held at Nassaus Carmichael Road detention center for the disease, since it holds many Haitian deportees awaiting repatriation, the ministry said.

Minister of National Security Dr. Bernard Nottage in the House of Assembly on Wednesday announced that The Bahamas is officially the first and only country in the region to obtain a tier one ranking in the 2015 U.S. annual trafficking in persons report.. According to Dr. Nottage, the U.S. Department of State released the report on Monday which revealed that The Bahamas is the only one among over a dozen other countries in the Caribbean region that complies with the standards put in place for the elimination of trafficking in persons in accordance to the Trafficking Victims Protections Act (TVPA).. Indeed, it is the only country in the region that has achieved a tier-one ranking, he said.. The goal of the U.S. Trafficking Persons Report is to stimulate action that creates partnerships around the word in the fight against trafficking in persons which is also referred to as modern day slavery. Countries throughout the world are affected by the trafficking of persons as either a source, transit ...

The debate on capital punishment has become more intense. Public opinion overwhelmingly supports capital punishment but does the government of the Bahamas have the will and courage to enforce laws that are currently on the books?. With 120 murders in 2013 and an average of 119 murders over the past three years, the Bahamas is now in the top 20 homicidal nations in the world per capita. Our national security and tourism product are being threatened by an epidemic level of violent crime including brutal murders, assaults and armed robberies. Bahamians and permanent residents are living in constant fear as an increasing amount of criminals daily terrorize our nation with home invasions, drive-by shootings, witness tampering, vigilante justice and in recent times the killings of innocent women, children and the elderly. We must ensure that events such as the Fox Hill massacre, when four innocent persons were murdered and seven persons injured, would never be repeated.. The Prime Minister, Attorney ...

San Salvador is a good environment to study geology, says Wronkiewicz, because it offers students a chance to study ...
A grant from the Chicago Zoological Society has facilitated eradication of black rats from White Cay. The project was a collaborative effort of the West Indian Iguana Specialist Group, the Bahamas National Trust, the Bahamas Department of Agriculture, and Zeneca Agrochemicals, Inc., which donated the rodenticide used in the eradication. Two cays that appear promising as potential sites for establishment of a second wild population of the White Cay iguana have been identified. Although they have yet to be surveyed on the ground, both look appropriate from the air, both are Crown land, and both have active seabird nesting colonies, a good sign that introduced predators are absent. W. Hayes and R. Carter visited White Cay in 1996 to obtain blood samples and other measurements from the iguanas and to evaluate their status ...

Jack Nicklaus hitting the Bahamas with Arnold Palmer? Or Gary Player?. Or Greg Norman and Nick Faldo just hanging out? What about Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson?. Not likely scenarios in their heydays. But Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Jordan Speith are doing just that, having fun with each other on social media, and all the while winning golf tournaments.. Thomas won his first major and was Player of the Year for 2017, and Spieth won his third major, the British Open. Fowler just shot a 61 to win Tiger Woods event.. What I love more than anything else that I see in this generation is the way you get four or five of these kids running off to some island in the Bahamas to have a fun time, Norman said Thursday ahead of his QBE Shootout at Tibur�n Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort.

By Stacie Saraswati Dooreck. Over time, our experience of yoga asanas evolves beyond the physical - the postures become our teachers and companions, showing us our relationship with ourselves and the world. Enjoy this collection of stories submitted by Sivananda Yoga practitioners from around the world, sharing their in-depth connections with each asana of the Sivananda sequence.. I was blessed to be born into a family that was already introduced to yoga as it came to the West. They raised me vegetarian after learning its health and nonviolence benefits from the gurus. I watched my father do Hatha Yoga in his meditation room as I grew up. As for me, I didnt start yoga myself until my late teens. Despite being raised in a yoga family, I didnt begin my own practice until it called to me personally.. The first call that brought me to yoga was my neck. At age 17, it called me in pain from too much waitressing and working out in the gym. In the privacy of my room, I tried a VHS tape of a yoga ...

The Caribbean reef shark, Carcharhinus perezii, discovered by Alonso Garza, is a requiem shark of the family Carcharhinidae found in the tropical western Atlantic and the Caribbean, from Florida and the Bahamas through to Brazil. Its length is up to 9.84 ft (3 m). It is one of the largest apex predators in these areas. Despite its abundance, it is one of the least studied large carcharhinid sharks. Caribbean reef sharks typically are seen cruising the edge of the reef over deep water. They feed on reef fish, rays and large crabs. Females have four to six pups that are about 2 ft long at birth.. ...
The 1926 Atlantic hurricane season featured the highest number of major hurricanes at the time. At least eleven tropical cyclones developed during the season, all of which intensified into a tropical storm and eight further strengthened into hurricanes. Six hurricanes deepened into a major hurricane, which is Category 3 or higher on the modern-day Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. The first system, the Nassau hurricane, developed near the Lesser Antilles on July 22. Moving west-northwest for much of its duration, the storm struck or brush several islands of the Lesser and Greater Antilles. However, the Bahamas later received greater impact. At least 287 deaths and $7.85 million (1926 USD) in damage was attributed to this hurricane. The next cyclone primarily effected mariners in and around the Maritimes of Canada, with boating accidents and drownings resulting in between 55 and 58 fatalities. In late August, the third hurricane brought widespread impact to the Gulf Coast of the United States, ...
The effects of Hurricane Irma in Florida were the costliest in the states history. Hurricane Irma developed from a tropical wave near the Cape Verde Islands on August 30. The storm quickly became a hurricane on August 31 and then a major hurricane shortly thereafter, but would oscillate in intensity over the next few days. By September 4, Irma resumed strengthening, and became a powerful Category 5 hurricane on the following day. The cyclone then struck Sint Maarten and the British Virgin Islands on September 6 and later crossed Little Inagua in the Bahamas on September 8. Irma briefly weakened to a Category 4, but re-intensified into a Category 5 hurricane before making landfall in the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago of Cuba. After falling to Category 3 status due to land interaction, the storm re-strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane in the Straits of Florida. Irma struck Florida twice on September 10 - the first as a Category 4 at Cudjoe Key and the second on Marco Island as a Category 3. ...

By Elisabeth Eaves. Shark hysteria came early to the Northern hemisphere this year. Markus Groh, a 49-year-old Austrian attorney, died in February after a shark bit him in the Bahamas. Shark Horror, ran the headline in a British tabloid. They are filling the waters off of Florida, announced an NBC news anchor.. Only a few of the hundreds of news reports added that in all of 2007, there was only one shark-attack fatality worldwide. In the last six years globally, sharks have bitten humans at a rate of 63 times a year, of which only 3.8 incidents a year were fatal, says George Burgess, who runs the International Shark Attack File. Shark attacks have increased decade on decade for the last century--but only because as the human population grows, more and more people go into the water. Its an odds situation, Burgess says. Of some 500 shark species known to humans, only between 10 and 15 have been implicated in biting people.. The real shark tale is that the marine predators have vastly more ...

It offered primarily sailing programs using local marinas and chartered boats sailing to the Bahamas and back. As the idea caught on and grew, it joined the high adventure offerings of the National Council of the BSA along with Philmont Scout Ranch and the Northern Tier High Adventure Base. In 1979 the Sea Base acquired a permanent facility on Lower Matecumbe Key and when this opened for Scouts in 1980 it ...
On 28 November, Congress confirmed Capt. Nicholass commission in writing and established his pay at $32 per month (this document, signed by John Hancock, was the first one issued for the Continental Naval Service, predating those of other early officers including Esek Hopkins and John Paul Jones, both of whom were shipmates on Alfreds first cruise). Capt. Nicholas moved quickly. By the end of the year, he had raised five companies of Marines and then sailed with them under Commodore Hopkins to the Bahamas. There, in March 1776, he led 284 men in a nearly-bloodless raid on Nassau, catching the British entirely by surprise and capturing two forts, 88 cannon, 15 mortars and a huge quantity of military stores. It was the Marines first-ever amphibious landing and the most successful naval operation of the Revolutionary War. Capt. Nicholas was still embarked in Alfred during her pursuit of the British ship Glasgow off the Rhode Island coast on 6 April, and saw his second lieutenant killed while at ...

AU - Meinen, Christopher S.. AU - Beal, Lisa M.. AU - De Jong, M. Femke. AU - Van Aken, Hendrik M.. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - More than two decades of hydrography on the Abaco line east of the Bahamas at 26N reveals decadal variability in the salinity of classical Labrador Sea Water (cLSW), despite the long distance from its source region in the North Atlantic Ocean. Hydrographic time series from the Labrador Sea and from the Abaco line show a pronounced step-like decrease in salinity between 1985 and 1995 in the Labrador Sea and between 1995 and 2010 at the Abaco line, suggesting a time lag between the two locations of approximately 9 years. The amplitude of the anomaly at the Abaco line is 50% of the amplitude in the Labrador Sea. A similar time lag and reduction of amplitude is found in the high-resolution OFES model, ...
Days after Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados Dr. Delisle Worrell said value-added tax (VAT) has hurt that islands tourism industry, Free National Movement (FNM) Chairman Darron Cash said the criticism should give The Bahamas government another reason to delay VATs introduction.. Last week, Worrell told The Nassau Guardian that he has seen declining enthusiasm for VAT in Barbados, adding that the tax is anti-tourism.. Worrell also said Barbados VAT system is a mess.. The recent comments from the governor of the Central Bank of Barbados provide a great example of good advice from a credible source, Cash said.. Dr. Delisle Worrells statements that in his country VAT has emerged as the anti-tourism tax should give the Christie government reason to stop, review and cancel their July 1 VAT implementation date.. If the prime minister and his dutiful junior minister (Michael Halkitis) were listening they would have already come to the conclusion that there is an overwhelming strong ...

What atmospheric scientists refer to as open cell cloud formation is a regular occurrence on the back side of a low-pressure system or cyclone in the mid-latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere, a low-pressure system will draw in surrounding air and spin it counterclockwise. That means that on the back side of the low-pressure center, cold air will be drawn in from the north, and on the front side, warm air will be drawn up from latitudes closer to the equator.. This movement of an air mass is called advection, and when cold air advection occurs over warmer waters, open cell cloud formations often result. This MODIS image shows open cell cloud formation over the Atlantic Ocean off the southeast coast of the United States on February 19, 2002. This particular formation is the result of a low-pressure system sitting out in the North Atlantic Ocean a few hundred miles east of Massachusetts. (The low can be seen as the comma-shaped figure in the GOES-8 Infrared image from February 19, 2002.). Cold air ...
