Study provides new information about the sea turtle 'lost years'
A new study satellite tracked 17 young loggerhead turtles in the Atlantic Ocean to better understand sea turtle nursery grounds and early habitat use during the 'lost years.' The study, conducted by a collaborative research team, including scientists from the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, was the first long-term satellite tracking study of young turtles at sea.

Sulphur haunts the ghost wreck
Sulphur and iron accumulation has once again been found in wood samples from old shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea. This time the samples are from the merchant vessel Ghost wreck and the warships Sword and the Crown. Wood samples from the ships have been analyzed by a group of scientists from the University of Gothenburg, Stockholm University and University of Calgary. The results are published in the latest issue of Scientific Reports.

3-D scans map widespread fish disease
Seventy-five percent of antibiotics in Danish fish farms is used to treat fish with enteric redmouth disease. With the help of 3-D scans, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have mapped how the fish are infected with the bacterium. The findings were recently published in the scientific publication PLOS ONE.

New fins evolve repeatedly in teleost fishes
Present in more than 6,000 living species of fish, the adipose fin, which lies between the dorsal fin and tail, has no clear function and is thought to be vestigial. However, a new study analyzing their origins finds that these fins arose repeatedly and independently in multiple species -- a striking example of convergent evolution. In addition, adipose fins appear to have repeatedly and independently evolved a skeleton, offering a glimpse the evolution of vertebrate appendages.

New data confirms Arctic ice trends: Sea ice being lost at a rate of 5 days per decade
The ice-free season across the Arctic is getting longer by five days per decade, according to new research from a team including Prof Julienne Stroeve (UCL Earth Sciences). New analysis of satellite data shows the Arctic Ocean absorbing ever more of the sun's energy in summer, leading to a later appearance of sea ice in the autumn. In some regions, autumn freeze-up is occurring up to 11 days per decade later than it used to.
