Understanding the factors that affect a bird species' nesting success can be crucial for planning effective conservation efforts. However, many studies of nesting birds last only a few years—and that means they can miss the effects of long-term variation and rare events. Show More Summary
New studies show complex effects of carbon dioxide on fish population As soon as they start life, it’s all about survival for juvenile young fish. They must learn to catch prey and to escape enemies. Additionally, at this stage of their lives they are highly sensitive to environmental factors such as temperature, oxygen and the […]

CSU faculty researchers find that marine plants could play a big role in reducing ocean acidification, a devastating side effect of climate change. ?One of the many devastating side effects of climate change is this: The planet’s seas are absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, making the water much more acidic. Ocean acidification (OA), as […]
Trace gases, ranging from carbon dioxide to water vapour, refer to any of the less common gases found in the Earth's atmosphere. Yet, many of these gases are responsible for the greenhouse effect. It's crucial to understand how their chemistry is affected by air-sea fluxes which involve the exchanges of heat, mass and momentum between the atmosphere and the ocean.
