A canary for climate change
Researchers find that wing-propelled diving seabirds, as well as their extinct relatives, may have served as an indicator species for environmental changes and faunal shifts. The findings also elucidate how past extinctions have influenced the modern distribution and population size of existing species.

Caribbean coral reef inhabitants critical in determining future of reefs
New research led by the University of Exeter has found that species that live in and erode coral reefs will play a major role in determining the future of reefs. The research, which is published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, highlights the delicate balance that exists between bioerosion and carbonate production on coral reefs.

For one family, zebrafish help provide genetic answers
Research in zebrafish has helped identify the cause of an unknown genetic disorder affecting a boy and two of his uncles, scientists report in the journal Genetics. The researchers tracked down a mutation carried only by the affected males and their mothers, within a gene called RPL10. When the equivalent gene was suppressed in zebrafish, the animals developed smaller heads, which is one of the major symptoms of the human disease.

Turtle tumors linked to excessive nitrogen from land-based pollution
Hawai'i's sea turtles are afflicted with chronic and often lethal tumors caused by consuming non-native algae 'superweeds' along coastlines where nutrient pollution is unchecked. The disease that causes these tumors is considered a leading cause of death in endangered green sea turtles.
