A noisy world: Crabs can hear
Northeastern researchers are the first to show that marine crabs are capable of hearing and that their auditory ability plays an important role in their response to fish predators. In a new paper published Tuesday in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Hughes and her team show that sound plays at least as much of a role in mud crabs' reaction to fish behavior as other widely studied cues -- and possibly more.

Chemical pollution of European waters is stronger than anticipated
Substantial improvements in freshwater quality by 2015 have been a declared objective of the EU member states, manifesting itself by the requirements of the Water Framework Directive. A recent study conducted by the Institute for Environmental Sciences Landau together with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and fellow scientists from France and Switzerland shows that this target is unlikely to be met due to the high levels of toxicants in the water bodies.
