Largest evolutionary study of sponges sheds new light on animal evolution
To provide a wider framework for understanding the molecular complexity behind the evolution of sponges, authors Riesgo, Windsor, Farrar, Giribet, and Leys (from the University of Barcelona, University of Alberta and Harvard University), performed the largest sequencing study to date on the genes of representatives from eight sponge genera covering all four currently recognized sponge classes.

Greenland's fastest glacier reaches record speeds
Jakobshavn Isbrę is moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at a speed that appears to be the fastest ever recorded. Researchers from the University of Washington and the German Space Agency measured the dramatic speeds of the fast-flowing glacier in 2012 and 2013. The results are published today in The Cryosphere, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union.

€2M EU funding for UEA project to understand Arctic ice melt
The University of East Anglia is launching a project to predict how the Arctic will cope with global warming by constructing a sea ice chamber. The chamber will reproduce the chemical exchanges between the ocean, sea ice, snow and the atmosphere in the Arctic. The aim is to help researchers make better predictions about the effect of global warming on both the Arctic and the rest of the world.
