Carbon turns over much faster through basal food-chain levels in aquatic than in terrestrial ecosystems
Global temperatures have increased dramatically over the past century, which is causing major impacts on climate patterns, ocean circulation and wildlife preservation. The increase in temperature is largely due to a rise of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, of which CO2 is one of the most important. To understand the capacity of ecosystems to sequester excesses of atmospheric CO2 and... View News Article (2004-02-25)

Billion-year revision of plant evolution timeline may stem from discovery of lignin in seaweed
Land plants' ability to sprout upward through the air, unsupported except by their own woody tissues, has long been considered one of the characteristics separating them from aquatic plants, which rely on water to support them. View News Article (2009-01-27)

Report supports shutdown of all high seas fisheries
Fish and aquatic life living in the high seas are more valuable as a carbon sink than as food and should be better protected, according to research from the University of British Columbia. View News Article (2014-06-05)

Warming temperatures cause aquatic animals to shrink the most

Found: First lungless frog
Researchers have confirmed the first case of complete lunglessness in a frog, according to a report in the April 8th issue of Current Biology, a publication of Cell Press. The aquatic frog Barbourula kalimantanensis apparently gets all the oxygen it needs through its skin. View News Article (2008-04-08)

Lots of carbon dioxide equivalents from aquatic environments
Large amounts of carbon dioxide equivalents taken up by plants on land are returned to the atmosphere from aquatic environments. This according to a study carried out by two master's students at Linköping University. View News Article (2014-03-25)

Rare Alpine Insect May Disappear with Glaciers
Loss of glaciers and snowpack due to climate warming in alpine regions is putting pressure on a rare aquatic insect, the meltwater stonefly, according to a study recently released in Climatic Change Letters. View News Article (2011-04-05)
