Study projects big thaw for Antarctic sea ice
A new modeling study suggests that a recent observed increase in summer sea-ice cover in Antarctica's Ross Sea is likely short-lived, with the area projected to lose more than half its summer sea ice by 2050 and more than three quarters by 2100. These changes will significantly impact marine life in what is one of the world's most productive and unspoiled marine ecosystems.

New invasive species breakthrough sparks interest around the world
A research breakthrough at Queen's University Belfast has sparked interest among aquatic biologists, zoologists and ecologists around the world. The joint research between Queen's and several South African institutions centered on the behavior of some of the 'world's worst' invasive species, including the large-mouth bass, an invasive fish which typically devastates invertebrate and other fish communities wherever it is introduced.

Altruistic suicide in organisms helps relatives
The question of why an individual would actively kill itself has been an evolutionary mystery. Death could hardly provide a fitness advantage to the dying individual. However, a new study has found that in single-celled algae, suicide benefits the organism's relatives.

Ambitious new pollution targets needed to protect Lake Erie from massive 'dead zone'
Reducing the size of the Lake Erie 'dead zone' to acceptable levels will require cutting nutrient pollution nearly in half in coming decades, at a time when climate change is expected to make such reductions more difficult.
