Molecular Biology and Evolution
Largest evolutionary study of sponges sheds new light on animal evolution
To provide a wider framework for understanding the molecular complexity behind the evolution of sponges, authors Riesgo, Windsor, Farrar, Giribet, and Leys (from the University of Barcelona, University of Alberta and Harvard University), performed the largest sequencing study to date on the genes of representatives from eight sponge genera covering all four currently recognized sponge classes.

Greenland's fastest glacier reaches record speeds
Jakobshavn Isbræ is moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at a speed that appears to be the fastest ever recorded. Researchers from the University of Washington and the German Space Agency measured the dramatic speeds of the fast-flowing glacier in 2012 and 2013. The results are published today in The Cryosphere, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union.

€2M EU funding for UEA project to understand Arctic ice melt
The University of East Anglia is launching a project to predict how the Arctic will cope with global warming by constructing a sea ice chamber. The chamber will reproduce the chemical exchanges between the ocean, sea ice, snow and the atmosphere in the Arctic. The aim is to help researchers make better predictions about the effect of global warming on both the Arctic and the rest of the world.

New study examines the effects of catch-and-release fishing on sharks
A new study led by scientists at the University of Miami Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science investigated how several species of coastal sharks respond to stress from catch-and-release fishing. The results revealed that each of the shark species responded differently. Hammerhead sharks were by far the most vulnerable to fighting on a fishing line.

At last: Mysterious ocean circles in the Baltic Ocean explained
Are they bomb craters from World War II? Are they landing marks for aliens? Since the first images of the mysterious ocean circles off the Baltic coast of Denmark were taken in 2008, people have tried to find an explanation. Now researchers from the University of Southern Denmark and University of Copenhagen finally present a scientific explanation.

NASA-NOAA satellite sees Tropical Cyclone 11P headed for Queensland
The NASA-NOAA Satellite known as Suomi NPP flew over newborn Tropical Cyclone 11P in the Coral Sea and captured a visible image of the newly developed storm as it moves toward a landfall in Queensland, Australia. Tropical Cyclone 11P developed from the low pressure area previously known as System 99P.

TRMM satellite peers at rainfall in developing low near Mozambique
The TRMM satellite flew above a System 91S, a tropical low pressure area, in the Mozambique Channel on Jan. 28, 2014, at 1011 UTC/5:11 a.m. EST. TRMM data collected with this pass may be helpful in evaluating this low for possible tropical cyclone formation.

Sponge bacteria, a chemical factory
A new, unknown strain of bacteria produces most of the bioactive substances that the stony sponge Theonella swinhoei exudes. An international research team led by ETH Zurich professor Jörn Piel describes these natural products, the associated genes and strain of bacteria in a publication in Nature.

Deaths attributed directly to climate change cast pall over penguins
Climate change is killing penguin chicks from the world's largest colony of Magellanic penguins, not just indirectly -- by depriving them of food, as has been repeatedly documented for these and other seabirds -- but directly as a result of drenching rainstorms and, at other times, heat, according to new findings from the University of Washington.

'Chameleon of the sea' reveals its secrets
The cuttlefish, known as the "chameleon of the sea," can rapidly alter both the color and pattern of its skin, helping it blend in with its surroundings and avoid predators. In a paper published Jan. 29 in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, the Harvard-MBL team reports new details on the sophisticated biomolecular nanophotonic system underlying the cuttlefish's color-changing ways.
