Climate change dating as far back as hundreds of million years ago was recorded in the shells of ancient oceanic plankton, according to new research published in the journal Earth and Planetary Sciences Letters.
A new study explores cycles of jellyfish behavior and how they relate to deep climactic conditions.
New evidence shows that a chemical produced by corals can affect local climate patterns.
A species of one of the world’s tiniest creatures, ocean plankton, is heading for extinction as it struggles to adapt to changes in sea temperature. And it may take local fisheries with it.
Until now, NASA satellites might have missed as much as 50 percent of the phytoplankton in the Southern Ocean. This would make it far more difficult to estimate the potential carbon capture of this vast area of the sea.
As the climate changes and oceans' acidity increases, tiny plankton seem set to succeed.
A salp is a barrel-shaped, free-floating tunicate (any living organism which has a saclike body enclosed in a thick membrane or tunic with two openings or siphons for the ingress and egress of water). It moves by contracting which pumps water through its body. The salp strains the water with internal feeding filters as it goes through the body. It consumes phytoplankton that are strained from the water. Salps are common throughout equatorial, temperate, and colder seas. They are most often...
