With 'biological sunscreen,' mantis shrimp see the reef in a whole different light
In an unexpected discovery, researchers have found that the complex eyes of mantis shrimp are equipped with optics that generate ultraviolet color vision. Mantis shrimp's six UV photoreceptors pick up on different colors within the UV spectrum based on filters made from an ingredient other animals depend on as built-in biological sunscreen, according to research reported in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on July 3.

From despair to repair: Dramatic decline of Caribbean corals can be reversed
With only about one-sixth of the original coral cover left, most Caribbean coral reefs may disappear in the next 20 years, primarily due to the loss of grazers in the region, according to the latest report by the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and the United Nations Environment Programme.

Zone tropical coastal oceans; manage them more like land resources: Scientists
Leading international scientists today published a joint call for societies to introduce and enforce use zoning of Earth's coastal ocean waters, mirroring approaches commonly used to manage and protect land resources. The 24 scientists, from Canada, the USA, the UK, China, Australia, New Caledonia, Sweden and Kenya, underline that 20 percent of humanity -- mostly in developing countries -- lives within 100 km of a tropical coast and urge new management measures as population and climate impacts on coastal waters worsen.

Blood donations could help reduce the risk of heart disease in shift workers
Austrian researchers have found that jetlag has severe effects on red blood cells, possibly explaining the high incidence of heart disease seen in shift workers. However, these effects can be counterbalanced by fresh, young red blood cells -- making blood donations a potential therapy for shift workers.
