Human impact is causing lower oxygen and higher carbon dioxide levels in coastal water bodies. Increased levels of carbon dioxide cause the water to become more acidic, having dramatic effects on the lifestyles of the wildlife that call these regions home. The problems are expected to worsen if steps aren't taken to reduce greenhouse emissions and minimize nutrient-rich run-off from developed areas along our coastlines. The ocean is filled with a soup of bacteria and viruses. The animals...

Mice at altitude save oxygen during exercise by using more carbohydrates rather than fat, Canadian and Peruvian scientists reveal This fuel-preference represents an adaptation in high altitude mice to use oxygen more efficiently than their low-altitude counterparts. "Andean mouse species have independently evolved a strategy to maximize energy yield when little oxygen is available" explain lead researchers Marie-Pierre Schippers and Grant McClelland from McMaster University. It is very...

The molecular secrets of a bacterium which produces its own oxygen to use the green house gas methane was unraveled A Dutch research team from the University of Nijmegen discovered bacteria that oxidize the methane without oxygen. Instead, these bacteria used nitrite, commonly available in freshwater sediments in agricultural areas. Methane is a very stable molecule and its degradation was generally believed to be impossible without oxygen (or sulfate). Now an international team from the The...
