Using the spread of infectious diseases as a model, a University of Utah researcher has shone new light on how humans first settled the islands of the Pacific some 3,500 years ago. Read about what his discoveries on EurekAlert! here.


Video:Corals that have adapted to live in the hottest seas might now find themselves in danger due to global warming, according University of Southampton researchers. Learn more from Professor Jörg Wiedenmann in this video and on EurekAlert!.

Dedicated scientists and volunteers working to better understand now rare abalone species
David Witting, a NOAA Fisheries biologist, has been working to restore abalone populations for over a decade. Bill Hagey, a developer of underwater instruments used by marine scientists, started working with the pioneer of abalone research, Dr. David Leighton, when he was in high school. Witting and Hagey began diving together for abalone a few years ago. Then, within a short time, their venture turned into a Citizen Science Group taking action to contribute new information to our understanding of southern California abalone populations.

Mining pollution alters fish genetics in southwest England
Pollution from historic mining activities in south west England has led to a reduction in genetic diversity of brown trout according to new research from the University of Exeter. The findings, which will be published on Friday, May 15, in the journal Evolutionary Applications, indicate that human activity can alter the genetic patterns of wild populations -- an important issue in modern conservation.

Ocean head count: Scientists develop new methods to track ocean biodiversity
How can you track changes in complex marine ecosystems over time? MBARI scientists are part of a team trying to do just this with a five-year, $7 million grant through the National Ocean Partnership Program. The proposed Marine Biodiversity Observation Network will combine species counts and ecological data from existing research programs with newer data gathered using cutting-edge satellites, robots, and genetic analyses.
