CSI-type study identifies snakehead
Several Canadian biologists, including two at Simon Fraser University, are breathing a collective sigh of relief after learning that a monstrous fish found in a Burnaby, B.C., pond is not a northern snakehead. But their identification of its correct identity is still a serious concern. The researchers' findings are in a new study, published online by the Management of Biological Invasions Journal.

'The Secret Life of a Lake: The Ecology of Northern Lakes and Their Stewardship'
As you canoe over the placid surface of your favorite lake, have you ever wondered what lies beneath you? What kind of creatures lurk there? What do they look like and why, and how do they interact? By letting readers in on a lake's "secret life," and sharing some fascinating stories of a lake's inhabitants, the author hopes to provide a deeper understanding of these complex and dynamic ecosystems.

Great Lakes waterfowl die-offs: Finding the source
A deadly menace stalks the loons, gulls and other water birds of the Great Lakes region: Type E botulism. Cases of the disease are on the rise, and to understand die-off origin and distribution, ocean engineers from Florida Atlantic University are using their expertise in experimental hydrodynamics. They have teamed with the US Geological Survey to help develop a novel way of tracking waterfowl carcasses to determine the source of lethal outbreaks.

Greenland's shrunken ice sheet: We've been here before
The Greenland Ice Sheet was smaller -- as small as it has ever been in recent history -- from 3-5,000 years ago, according to scientists who studied the ice sheet's history using a new technique they developed for interpreting the Arctic fossil record.

Satellite trio to explore the Earth's magnetic field
SWARM is an ESA mission as part of its "Living Planet" program. "The satellite swarm -- hence the name -- is to measure the Earth's magnetic field from space with unprecedented precision for at least four years," elaborated professor Huettl. For this, the three satellites fly in an optimized formation.

Expert assessment: Sea-level rise could exceed 1 meter in this century
Sea-level rise in this century is likely to be 70-120 centimeters by 2100 if greenhouse-gas emissions are not mitigated, a broad assessment of the most active scientific publishers on that topic has revealed. The 90 experts participating in the survey anticipate a median sea-level rise of 200-300 centimeters by the year 2300 for a scenario with unmitigated emissions.

MU research sheds light on nerve regeneration following spinal cord injury
University of Missouri researchers have discovered how the sea lamprey, an eel-like fish, regrows the neurons that comprise the long nerve "highways" that link the brain to the spinal cord. Findings may guide future efforts to promote recovery in humans who have suffered spinal cord injuries.
