To mark International Day for Biological Diversity 2023, Elsevier, launched a free to download report that takes an in-depth look into Dutch biodiversity research in comparison to other nations.
This study systematically evaluates the successful human stewardship in managing marine protected areas to provide useful lessons for future marine conservation actions.

This study provides a better understanding of the burrowing behaviour of the sub-legal size clams discarded on the sediment after being disturbed and contributes important data to improve practices for minimizing mortality of dislodged clams that are discarded on the sediment surface.
This study proposes a deep learning model based on a convolutional neural network, which can effectively fuse atmospheric information (wind field) and station water level information and can effectively forecast the station water level and also have a good response to the anomalous water level increase brought by storm surge.
Selective copepod grazing and water mass origin impacted spring bloom composition. Diatom bloom enhanced zooplankton recruitment and deep carbon export. Spring bloom composition impacted summer plankton community. Mixo- and heterotrophic protists dominated the nutrient-poor summer months. Copepod grazers controlled the summer protist community.
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing by highlighting some of the many beneficial industrial and pharmaceutical applications of marine microalgae.
This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation and Goal 14: Life below water by encompassing an overview of various biological methods for removing microplastics from water.
The survey presented here was conducted to better understand public perceptions of climate change, human impacts and the value and management of marine and coastal ecosystems.
Sea urchins are one of the most amenable model systems in developmental biology and they have enabled major discoveries. In this study, the authors investigated how conserved the genomic and regulatory architecture is between P. lividus, other sea urchins, and chordates. By integrating genomic and regulatory datasets, they demonstrated how regulatory changes could be associated with the origin of the novel body plan of urchins and other echinoderms.
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation by describing advancements in the use of melt electrospun nanofibers for use in marine oil spill cleanup.
