Acidification and warming threaten Mediterranean Sea iconic species
Scientist finalize their findings about the threat of Mediterranean Sea warming and acidification on key species and ecosystems after a 3.5 year study in Barcelona this week. They have found that this sea is warming and acidifying at unprecedented rates. The main reason is emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels causing warming of the ocean as well as acidification of its waters due to uptake of CO2 by surface waters.

Climate change winners and losers
A group of scientists have traced the genetics of modern penguin populations back to their early ancestors from the last Ice Age to better understand how three Antarctic penguin species -- gentoo, Adelie, and chinstrap penguins -- fared in response to past climate change.

Study of white sharks in the northwest Atlantic offers optimistic outlook for recovery
White sharks are among the largest, most widespread apex predators in the ocean, but are also among the most vulnerable. A new study, the most comprehensive ever on seasonal distribution patterns and historic trends in abundance of white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) in the western North Atlantic Ocean, used records compiled over more than 200 years to update knowledge and fill in gaps in information about this species. The study was published June 11 in PLOS ONE.

Study shows Deepwater Horizon crude oil impairs swimming performance of juvenile mahi-mahi
A new study led by University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science scientists showed up to a 37 percent decrease in overall swimming performance of Deepwater Horizon oil-exposed juvenile mahi-mahi. The findings reveal the toxic effects of crude oil on ecologically and commercially valuable fish that reside in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
