The aim of this study was to assess the levels of depression, coping skills, and quality of life and their correlates among a sample of Jordanian adults aged ≥18 years during the COVID-19 lockdown implemented in Jordan. This information may help in the development of appropriate psychological interventions aimed at improving mental health and quality of life among at-risk groups during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.

This article addresses SDG 3 and 10 by characterising the spread of COVID-19 in Brazil, showing that existing socioeconomic inequalities, rather than age or health status, determined the initial course of the epidemic. Areas with high socioeconomic vulnerability were disproportionately affected, and these results suggest that targeted policies are needed to protect the most vulnerable groups.
