Reviewing the age of world travel. its beauty, history and possibilities. Travel from the sandy shore lines to mauntain tops and the dry desert to the firtle valleys.
The gruesome thoughts of sickly whales being eaten alive are horrific, but nature can be very cruel, and, a whale that is weak enough makes easy prey.
I have tried something different to get out of the darkness. I do not know ...
Coral reef ecologist/paleo-biologist Richard Aronson at the Florida Institute of Technology, commented that reefs can only recover if we do things to mitigate and reverse climate change.
A second version of a poem originally written as an epitaph. This time, it's all about the Dolphins and what life means to them.
Captain Adrigon does more than explain the situation of the ocean-bound whales today on your earth, Angorius. He explains where they originated from and what the starship personelle think of those who refuse to look after them as they were to do in place of those who had to leave this...
In February 1943 the US War Department sent a letter to all American troops that were to be stationed in Britain. It was to tell them that the British culture was very different to that of America.
Ideas are thought in dreams and awake, but you take them wherever they are and wherever they lead you!
They are carnivorous, happily feasting on poisonous prey and converting toxins ingested for their own defence, some even containing, within their bodies, a sun-loving algae which produce nutrients used by their hosts.
Sea-level rise is, for many areas of the planet, the potentially disastrous follow-on from rising temperatures due to climate change, land-based ice melting and ocean waters getting warmer.
Due to the climate warming the oceans are growing warmer and more acidic and this is the result of the green house gas theory.
Sexually reproducing Organisms normally carry two genome copies, one from each parent, because the Cambrian occurrence saw this process going wrong slightly, when an invertebrate organism somehow inherited twice the usual gene number of genes.
This survey turned out to be highly topical, because manned submersibles were sent into the trench to explore its depths, as beforehand only two humans had visited Challenger Deep
My thoughts about the size we humans are in comparison to the seas, stars and the universe. Thoughts that many people think about but don`t always speak about.
It is undoubtedly good news that corals had the ability to recover once before, suggesting that vulnerable ecosystems do have the resiliency to recover.
This a list of things we can do now to save our oceans from the downhill spiral it is currently going through. If we don't take heed now and try to fix these problems then we will have destroyed our means of survival for future generations. Not a pretty picture!
Tunicates are closely related to vertebrates, which include fish and all land animals with bones. They are common in all marine habitats, attaching themselves to virtually any fixed object on a coral reef.
The common ancestor of all vertebrates on Earth that have jaws, – including humans of course, was a primitive shark dubbed Acanthodes bronni.
Billions of years ago Beings evolved, not as we are today. This piece details (as much as I can) the separation of the Sun, Moon and Earth and the happenings thereon.
If size is relative to speed, then a creature one hundred times smaller than a Cheetah would be really moving fast if it could manage one mile in an hour. With that in mind, look at what nature has gifted some creatures with, in terms of relative rapidity.
The largest 'spider' of all, albeit of the oceanic variety, is without doubt the Taka-ashi-gani, or Japanese Spider Crab, one recorded specimen having a 3.7m or 12ft span and weighing 41 Lb on the scales!
These animals are actually soft-bodied molluscs , distantly related to land slugs and snails, but not having shells, like the snails.
Many are possibly unaware that ice in the Arctic region has a vital role to play in regulating the climate of the planet.
Over the past 70 years, research has revealed that species of plankton, normally only found in the Pacific have now become common in the Atlantic, moving through an Arctic sea-ice passage that has opened up.
A preliminary report by international marine experts tells of global ocean conditions being far worse than was imagined.
