A review of techniques used to anlyze microplastics: are they green?
The clown anemonefish (Amphiprion ocellaris) is a common model species in studies assessing the impact of climate changes on tropical coral fish physiology, metabolism, growth, and stress. However, the basic endocrine principles for the control of food intake and energy homeostasis, under normal and elevated sea temperatures, in this species remain unknown. In this work, we studied food intake and growth in clown anemonefish reared at different temperatures and with different food availability. We also analyzed expression of genes in the melanocortin system, which is believed to be involved in the control of appetite and feeding behavior.The melanocortin system aids in modifying food intake in response to climate change.
Earth Day is widely recognised as the largest secular observance in the world, marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behaviour and provoke policy changes. This day recognises and celebrates the Earth and its ecosystems as our home and highlights the need to protect earth to enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change, and stop the collapse of biodiversity. To raise awareness of Earth Day 2021, Elsevier presents a curated list of free access journal articles and book chapters in support of this year's theme - Restore our Earth.
World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater and raising awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.To raise awareness of the value of water, Elsevier presents a curated list of free access journal articles and book chapters. At Elsevier, we are advancing #SDG6 research and ensuring that #Everydrop counts.
Proximity and size of the nearest market (‘market gravity’) have been shown to have strong negative effects on coral reef fish communities that can be mitigated by the establishment of closed areas.
Anthropogenic activity is a major driver of seabird injury and mortality in the 21st century. In the current study we aimed to monitor glucocorticoid metabolites (ufGCM) concentrations, as a marker of physiological stress, in injured, emaciated (starvation/illness) and oiled African penguins through the stages of rehabilitation at a rescue centre in South Africa.
Fishery conflicts are projected to increase as a result of changes in our oceans. We consider how multiple causal factors can drive conflict by using a scenario approach. We construct four scenarios in conflict-prone regions of the world. Questions sparked by the scenarios can help build anticipatory governance capacity.
