Minke whales lunge 100 times/hour to feed under sea ice
Minke whales are one of the most common whales in Antartica, but also one of the most vulnerable. Little was known about how these small whales feed until Ari Friedlaender and colleagues attached tags to two animals that measured their movements showing that the whales do not need to be killed to study their feeding behaviour and that they perform over 100 lunges per hour under the sea ice.

The Maldives and the whale shark: The world's biggest fish adds value to paradise
They are the largest fish in the world but the impact of this majestic and charismatic animal on the economy of the island nation of the Maldives was largely unknown. A new study by scientists of the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme reveals that a small group of whale sharks in a single Maldivian Atoll accounts for nearly 3 percent of the global shark ecotourism and nearly half that of the Maldives'.

99th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America
Climate change, predators, and the trickle down effects on ecosystems
Because predator species are animals that survive by preying on other organisms, they send ripples throughout the food web, regulating the effects other animals have on that ecosystem. Ecologists are just beginning to understand how the impacts of climate change are affecting predatory keystone species and their ecosystems.
