A member of the Marine Biological Association has been awarded an OBE in recognition of his research into marine pollution by plastics.. Professor Richard Thomson highlighted the presence of microplastic (coining the now familiar term) in the ocean in a paper in the journal Science (Lost at sea: where is all the plastic?). Subsequent work showed the extent to which microplastics could be ingested and their potential to transport pollutants into organisms.. He is a natural communicator and advocate, moving beyond the results of research to propose and promote potential solutions to the plastic problem.

Incomplete}} This article continues the discussion on identifying the biological value in the marine environment. It considers the difficulties of defining areas where aggregation of species may occur, especially for widely dispersed highly mobile species. It is part of a summary of the discussions held during a workshop on marine biological valuation,held from 6 to 8 December 2006 at Ghent (Belgium). The workshop was a joint venture of the EU CA ENCORA (http://www.encora.org) and the EU NoE MARBEF (http://www.marbef.org).

In 1948, Shinya traveled to the United States, to attend graduate school at Princeton University. He visited the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) at Woods Hole for the first time in June 1949. After doing some work on the eggs of Nereis, a marine worm, Shinya was invited by his friend, Albert Tyler, to examine the spindles in live eggs of Chaetopterus, a tube-worm. Tyler suggested that Inoué examine the effects of colchicine on the spindle.

Aug. 28, 2014 - Artificial reefs, created by intentionally sinking ships, provide a home for marine life of all types. The sites attract fishermen and divers, who unintentionally leave trash behind, some of which is deadly to marine mammals. A team of conservation divers visits three reefs to carefully extract fishing line and anchor rope that have become entangled in ocean habitats and pose threats to turtles, dolphins, and other marine life.For more about TISIRIs reef creation and marine conservation efforts, click here.
Acting as a neuromodulator or neurohormone, neuropeptides play a crucial role in producing physiological or behavioural responses in animals that are appropriate to the constraints imposed by the environment. The NEMO project is aimed at studying the evolution of neuroendocrine systems and their role in regulating the plasticity of biological cycles and reproduction in unconventional marine models - coral, molluscs and eels. The NEMO project is based on developing the most advanced technologies to compare the structure and function of endocrine pathways regulating reproduction and associated processes.. In addition to fundamental knowledge relating to the regulation of physiological functions in marine species of economic significance, this research will potentially offer interesting prospects for development in the fields of aquaculture, fishing and the environment.. ...

Marine biology- Marine biology is the scientific study of living organisms in the ocean or other marine or brackish bodies of water. World Marine Environment.Given that in biology many phyla, families and genera have some species that live in the sea and others that live on land, marine biology classifies species based on the environment rather than on taxonomy. Marine biology differs from marine ecology as marine ecology is focused on how organisms interact with each other and environment and biology is the study of the animal itself.

Author(s): Shor, George G, Jr.; Shor, Elizabeth N; Spiess, Fred N | Abstract: The George H. Scripps Memorial Marine Biological Laboratory is the original building on the present site of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (of the University of California, San Diego). Now frequently called Old Scripps, the two-story reinforced concrete building was erected in 1909-1910, and thus was the first truly permanent structure of any of the shoreside marine biological stations in the western hemisphere. Although unpretentious, it is well suited to its purpose and typifies the direct approach of this renowned institution to the problems of learning about the sea. The building is now but one - and a small one - of the institutions many buildings, but a surprisingly large number of the institutions research projects have some relation to it. The building is also an architectural landmark, as one of the first monolithic concrete buildings designed by, and built under the supervision of, Irving J. Gill.

We undertook combined stable carbon, nitrogen and sulphur isotope analysis of marine and terrestrial faunal remains from two prehistoric coastal shell middens in Denmark. The aim of the investigation was to establish whether sulphur isotopes were useful in discriminating terrestrial and marine consumers in this region. We found that sulphur isotopes do separate marine and terrestrial fauna but, contrary to our expectations, we observed a negative correlation between δ34S and δ13C values for marine fauna. We conclude that similar studies over a broader geographical range are needed before sulphur isotopes can be reliably used to study coastal resource exploitation. ...

Marine ecosystems are home to a host of different species ranging from planktonic organisms that form the base of the marine food web to large marine mammals. Many species rely on marine ecosystems for both food and shelter from predators. They are very important to the overall health of both marine and terrestrial environments. Coastal habitats are those above the spring high tide limit or above the mean water level in non-tidal waters. [2] They are close to the sea and include habitats such as coastal dunes and sandy shores, beaches , cliffs and supralittoral habitats. Coastal habitats alone account for approximately 30% of all marine biological productivity. The diversity and productivity are also important for humans. These habitats provide a rich source of food and income. They also support species that serve as animal feed, fertilizers, additives in food and cosmetics. Habitats such as mangroves and seagrasses protect the coastlines from wave action and erosion. Other areas provide ...
According to marinecareers.net:. The field of marine biology -- the study of marine organisms, their behaviors, and their interactions with the environment -- is considered one of the most all-encompassing fields of oceanography. To understand marine organisms and their behaviors completely, marine biologists must have a basic understanding of other aspects or disciplines of oceanography, such as chemical oceanography, physical oceanography, and geological oceanography. Therefore, marine biologists and biological oceanographers study these other fields throughout their careers, enabling them to take a big picture approach to doing research.. back to the top. ...

Natural products have been a rich source of compounds with structural and chemical diversity for drug discovery. However, antibiotic resistance in bacteria has been reported for nearly every antibiotic once it is used in clinical practice. In the past decade, pharmaceutical companies have reduced their natural product discovery projects because of challenges, such as high costs, low return rates, and high rediscovery rates. The largely unexplored marine environment harbours substantial diversity and is a large resource to discover novel compounds with novel modes of action, which is essential for the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections. In this Review, we report compounds derived from marine sources that have shown in-vivo and in-vitro efficacy against drug-resistant bacteria. Analysis of the physicochemical properties of these marine natural products with activity against drug-resistant bacteria showed that 60% of the compounds have oral bioavailability potential. Their overall ...
The Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) and its polar counterpart, Arctic Ocean Diversity, have pioneered new understandings of the evolution and diversity of life.. Led by the Australian Antarctic Division, CAML coordinated 18 major research voyages to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean during the IPY. Australian scientists participated in three CAML voyages focusing on waters adjacent to East Antarctica - known as the Collaborative East Antarctic Marine Census (CEAMARC). These voyages, aboard Japans Umitaka Maru, Frances LAstrolabe and Australias Aurora Australis, studied sea-bed communities and the deep pelagic (open ocean) zone of the region adjacent to Terre Adélie and George V Land.. Altogether, CAML revealed that Antarctica is a single bioregion united by the Circumpolar Current - the largest current in the world. Previously thought to be low in species diversity, the Antarctic is now known to have an unexpected richness of life. In addition, molecular techniques show Antarctica to ...
Cold-adapted marine bacteria represent an untapped reservoir of chemical-diversity able to synthesize a wide range of bioactive compounds, including antibiofilm molecules. The present research project aims to explore extreme marine environments and to exploit marine-derived biomolecules as a sustainable source of novel antibiofilm compounds. In this work, the antibiofilm activity of total organic extracts derived from cultures of Polar marine bacteria, belonging to Flavobacterium, Pseudoalteromonas, Pseudomonas, Psychrobacter and Psychromonas genera, were evaluated against some pathogenic bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Suitable purification protocols will be developed to purify and characterize the most promising antibiofilm molecules, and their possible clinical applications will be investigated.. ...
Water covers about 70% of our planet and sets it apart from every other planet we know. Water plays an important role in the global climate and is a source of food, minerals, energy and recreation. Aquatic ecosystems teem with organisms, ranging from tiny phytoplankton and zooplankton to coral, fish, and whales. Unfortunately, aquatic ecosystems are also used as dumping grounds for much of societys waste and are profoundly affected by global change. In the two-year track Freshwater & Marine Biology in the Masters programme Biological Sciences you will immerse yourself in research ranging from tropical marine biology to the ecology of wetlands ecosystems.
Marine lipids are today the focus of growing interest in the field of cosmetics, nutrition and health. Fish oils, particularly those derived from oily fish, are naturally rich in long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids and are renowned for their properties offering protection against neurodegenerative disorders, cardiovascular diseases and cancers. There is a problem, however, with relying on this single, increasingly rare, source. New sources need to be found to ensure the long-term availability of marine lipids and to respond to growing market demand. Lipids from microalgae now offer a potential alternative source to fish oils. But because of their phototrophic metabolism [the process by which organisms derive energy from light and carbon from CO2], microalgae are difficult microorganisms to cultivate on an industrial scale, resulting in relatively high costs to produce the biomass. Design and operational issues have arisen in moving from growing a few litres in the laboratory to cultivating ...
You can save corals, whales, and other marine life even in the comfort of your home. Our e-network allows participation from people of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds as easily as possible.. Every individuals individual contribution counts. Together, we can sway public opinion and pressure governments to be more serious and intense in protecting the lives of marine species.. For example, the Hawksbill Turtle, which is found in marine tropical regions worldwide, is now an endangered species. It is estimated that the population of Hawksbill Turtle has declined by as much as 80% over the last century. Demand for the turtles is driven by its meat and shells.. However, thanks to the efforts of the concerned public, many nations have deemed the slaughter, sale, and trade of hawksbill turtles illegal. Such progress in protecting marine biodiversity is a manifestation of how individuals can work together to have an informed voice.. Once youve registered, you will receive timely correspondence ...
E-mail: [email protected] My love for marine biology began when I was in high school. While balancing my regular day to day classes, I managed to take night and summer classes at my local community college. It was there I was able to take college-level marine biology courses in Bahia de Los Angeles, Mexico and was well on my way to pursuing a degree in biology. Later on I attended the University of California, San Diego where I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution. Toward the end of my college career, I began working for the Marine Turtle Research Group (now the Marine Turtle Genetics Group and Marine Turtle Ecology and Assessment Groups) as a part-time student worker. Once I graduated, I started working fulltime and have been ever since. My role in the Marine Turtle Genetics Group utilizes lab techniques such as DNA extraction and Polymerase Chain Reaction to process tissue samples we receive from turtle populations all around the world. The data generated from ...

The exceedingly small size of existing marine reserves in Central California prevents them from achieving many of the goals and benefits attributed to marine reserves in the scientific literature. The number of fish and invertebrates inhabiting existing reserves is small, compared to the total population sizes of species in Central California. Existing reserves in Central California protect a variety of shallow water habitats and species, but do not provide reserve benefits for animals living in deeper water, unless they reside in existing reserves during a portion of their life. The older marine reserves in Central California show some of the primary benefits associated with protection from exploitation, including modest increases in size and abundance of fishes, but it is difficult to assess the degree to which these benefits represent pristine conditions. This is to be expected, as the primary fish species inhabiting these reserves (rockfishes) are slow growing and exhibit sporadic ...
Viruses are recognized as major players in planktonic ecosystems. Recent studies have been conducted on medium and large scales. Of these, many are based on host cultures, thereby making it possible to isolate the virus from these hosts, but this is limited because of the diversity of viruses obtained. In addition, recent studies suggest that many viruses are highly specific to their hosts.. However, it is believed that virus diversity is so great that it is desirable to limit studies to a specific taxonomic group. The giant double-stranded DNA Viruses, Phycodnaviridae, which infect algae, are good candidates for such a study, because there is genomic data available and preliminary studies have already been carried out on their diversity. Amongst them are the prasinovirus which are prasinophyte viruses, an important component of picoplankton photosynthesis in oceans. The algae-prasinophyte-prasinovirus system has the advantage of including hosts and virus whose genome is completely sequenced ...
The transportation of species outside their native range forces locally-adapted genotypes to quickly adapt to new environmental conditions.
Fisheries management is moving in a new direction, and the Fishermens Alliance is excited to be partnering with local fishermen and industry leaders to support the new paradigm. The traditional fisheries management strategy has been to focus on each species in isolation, but the new approach that is being embraced across the country is something called Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management.. In this new system, the entirety of an ecosystem - food fish, small schooling fish, predators, other marine life and humans - are taken into account, as are changing climate conditions and environmental factors. It provides opportunities to rebuild habitats and fish populations, diversify fishing businesses and better understand the entirety of the marine environment. Check back in the upcoming months to see how you can contribute to this important work. ...
en] Among the different analytical tools proposed as an alternative to the very expensive gas chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (GC-HRMS) analyses of polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and polychlorodibenzofurans, Chemically Activated LUciferase gene eXpression (CALUX) in vitro cell bioassay is very promising. It allows the analyses of a high number of samples since it is relatively fast, inexpensive, and sensitive. However, this technique is not yet widely applied for screening or environmental monitoring. The main reasons are probably the lack of validation and the difficulty in interpreting the global biological response of the bioassay. In this paper, the strict quality control criteria set up for the validation of CALUX are described. The validation has shown good repeatability (relative standard deviation (RSD) = 9%) and good within-lab reproducibility (RSD = 15%) of the results. The quantification limit, in the conditions applied in this paper, is 1.25 pg CALUX-TEQ/g fat. ...

Decapods - It is sometimes stated that there are no Decapod crustaceans in Antarctica (crabs, lobsters etc.), while this is not entirely true with 22 different species having been recorded, they are no where near as common as they are in other seas where they are usually very obvious, common and clearly an important part of the marine life. In addition to their scarcity, they are restricted to places where the water is above 0°C, largely due to a characteristic of their metabolism that means that they are unable regulate magnesium levels below around +1°C.. The fossil record shows that there were decapods present but had disappeared from Antarctic waters in any numbers from about 15 million years ago.. In recent years, spider crabs have been found in several locations around Antarctica, which has led to warnings of how an invasion could place much of the Antarctic marine fauna in danger as this new predator is now able to return to Antarctica now that sea temperatures were rising as a ...

The ocean is not only a source of mineral raw materials. The worlds oceans also hold a hardly-researched but significant potential for the acquisition of new substances from marine organisms such as fungi, which can be used in medicine, cosmetics or crop protection. In the search for unknown substances from the sea, researchers from Kiel University (CAU) and their international colleagues have analysed the genome of two marine fungi from the Wattenmeer (Wadden Sea) in the North Sea for the first time, the species Calcarisporiumsp. and Pestalotiopsissp.. In doing so, they managed to decode new gene clusters that encode for so-called secondary metabolites - an important basis for the development of new drugs. The results were published today (Thursday 5 July) in the journal Scientific Reports. Hier weiterlesen. Well-known carriers of marine active agents from the ocean are algae, from which food and cosmetics are produced. Less explored, but with an equally large potential, are marine fungi, from ...
