Many once-endangered marine species have reached recovery levels that may warrant them coming off of the endangered species list. This recovery is presenting new challenges however as human communities sometimes struggle to adapt to their sudden return. Read more on EurekAlert!.

UM-based cooperative research institute receives $125 million award, renewed agreement
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration awarded the Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies up to $125 million to fund the consortium's activities over the next five years. CIMAS, which is based at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, brings together the research and educational resources of 10 partner universities to increase scientific understanding of Earth's oceans and atmosphere within the context of NOAA's mission.

Historical land use an important factor for carbon cycling in northern lakes
The historical past is important in understanding environmental conditions today and predicting how these might change in the future. This is according to researchers from Umeå University in Sweden, whose analyses of lake-sediment records show how lake-water carbon concentrations have varied depending on long-term natural dynamics over thousands of years, but also in response to human impacts over the past several hundred years. The study has been published in PNAS.

New species of marine roly poly pillbug discovered near Port of Los Angeles
A new research paper published in the open access journal ZooKeys reports on a discovery made during a Los Angeles class fieldtrip -- a new species of marine pillbug. While documenting the new species, a second new species of pillbug originally collected 142 years ago by biologists on a wooden sailing ship in Alaska was discovered in a collection room at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) by researchers Adam Wall and Dr. Regina Wetzer.

I knew it was you by the sound of your (whale) voice
The same theory that explains individual differences in human speech has recently been applied to other members of the animal kingdom, including dogs and deer. Now researchers from Syracuse University in New York are working to understand whether individually distinctive vocal characteristics of North Atlantic right whales could be used to identify and track individuals -- a potentially useful tool for studying an endangered species that spends much of its life hidden under the water.
