What's Sciworthy today

Expedition to find rare pipefish in Queensland Australia

My research interests are centered on the evolutionary relationships among seahorse and pipefish (family Syngnathidae) through morphological study and DNA sequencing. This entails collecting and observing fish for study via scuba diving and photography in shallow inshore water in which the underwater habitat is typically characterized by silty and muddy sediment, sandy and rocky bottom, or dense seagrass […]

Opah the first deep warm-blooded fish ever discovered

New research by NOAA Fisheries has revealed the opah, or moonfish, as the first fully warm-blooded fish that circulates heated blood throughout its body much like mammals and birds, giving it a competitive advantage in the cold ocean depths. The silvery fish, roughly the size of a large automobile tire, is known from oceans around […]

Ice ages in the Southern Hemisphere are influenced primarily by sea surface temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide rather than changes in the Earth’s orbit

A new international study casts doubt on the leading theory of what causes ice ages around the world — changes in the way the Earth orbits the sun. The researchers found that glacier movement in the Southern Hemisphere is influenced primarily by sea surface temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide rather than changes in the Earth’s […]
