ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to the marine research and development in the U.S. A new study shows that certain marine organisms are not releasing oxygen or taking carbon dioxide. The researchers from the University of California found out that the ocean odor dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) can link reef fish to its foods. A new modeling approach has been developed by the scientists to be used in estimating sea ice thickness.

    For marine organisms, decoupling between the planktonic larval stage and the benthic-associated juvenile stage can lead to variable patterns of population replenishment, which have the potential to influence the effectiveness of marine reserves. We measured spatial and temporal variability in...

    The article presents information on a study which aimed to determine why some fish species do not eat the cleaner fish considering that the cleaners are not hard to find in the coral reef ecosystem. Findings suggest that the cleaners use tactile dances and dance more when they encounter hungrier...

    Replenishment of local populations of reef fishes typically occurs via settlement of planktonic larvae, a process that is variable in space and time. We examined spatial variation in settlement of three species of damselfishes (genus Dascyllus) in relation to variation in average near-field...

    The Pomacentrid fish Chrysiptera rex (Snyder ) is a small conspicuous member of Indo-Pacific coral reefs. Despite having planktonic larvae, which would seem to facilitate genetic and morphological homogeneity, it possesses three distinct color variations, which are geographically restricted. To...

    Understanding the thermal physiology of tropical marine organisms has become an issue of major interest due to the potential impact of current global changes in temperature. In this study we report the effect of body size on the thermal tolerance (as critical thermal maximum (CTMax) and minimum...
