Unraveling the mysteries of the Red Sea: A new reef coral species from Saudi Arabia
A new hard coral species Pachyseris inattesa is described from the Saudi Arabian Red Sea. Although the Red Sea is famous as an important region of marine biodiversity it has remained deeply understudied and we are still to discover its innermost secrets. The study was published in the open-access journal ZooKeys.

Older coral species more hardy, UT Arlington biologists say
An examination of disease patterns in 14 species of Caribbean corals facing stressors like climate change and pollution shows older species are faring better. The newly-published research could give clues about what coral reefs will look like in the future.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Julio now far from Hawaii
Hurricane Julio moved past the Hawaiian Islands like a car on a highway in the distance, and NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of the storm, now downgraded to a tropical storm located more than 700 miles away. Julio is far enough away from Hawaii so that there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Lionfish characteristics make them more 'terminator' than predator
New research on the predatory nature of red lionfish, the invasive species that is decimating native fish populations in parts of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, seems to indicate that lionfish are not just a predator, but more like the 'terminator' of movie fame. In behavior that is called 'alarming,' it appears that in some cases lionfish will continue to hunt until the last fish of a local population is dead.
