‘Ocean Organ’ aims to highlight the damaging effects of climate change
A collaboration between world-leading researchers from the University of Plymouth, and Plymouth-based artist and scientist Dr Kate Crawfurd, aims to highlight the precise effects of ocean acidification
Academic contributes to documentary exploring humans’ impact on the planet
Jason Hall-Spencer, Professor of Marine Biology at the University of Plymouth, is among the expert commentators in a new international documentary exploring the impact of overpopulation on marine, animal and human life
Study demonstrates reductions in CO₂ could boost the recovery of marine life
World-leading experts in ocean acidification and warming from the University of Plymouth and the University of Tsukuba say making meaningful reductions in CO₂ emissions could help marine life damaged by increasingly acidified oceans to recover.
Scientists join call for major shift in understanding to protect the ocean
Professor of Marine Biology Jason Hall-Spencer and Professor of Oceanography Chris Reid, from the University of Plymouth, are among the authors of a new international report calling for an urgent change in the way we think and talk about the ocean.
Plastics and rising CO2 pose combined threat to marine environment
Research involving the University of Plymouth found that three weeks in the ocean greatly altered the bacterial diversity on plastic bottles.
Future ocean conditions could cause significant changes in marine mussels
Scientists from the University of Plymouth have showed that increased temperature and acidification of our oceans could cause significant physical changes in an economically important marine species
Rising carbon dioxide levels will change marine habitats and fish communities
Researchers from the University of Plymouth and colleagues have showed that elevated dissolved CO2 conditions can lead to a 45% decrease of fish diversity, with a loss of coral-associated species and a rearrangement of feeding behaviour.
Crab larvae already showing effects of coastal acidification
Ocean acidification is having a profound impact on a prized crustacean that supports the most valuable fishery on the West Coast of the United States, according to a new study involving the University of Plymouth
Warmer and acidified oceans can lead to ‘hidden’ changes in species behaviour
Research published in Nature Climate Change, involving scientists at the University of Plymouth, shows that in warmer seawater with lower pH, a common clam – the peppery furrow shell (Scrobicularia plana) – makes considerable changes to its feeding habits
Expert backs international call for action to safeguard our oceans
Professor Jason Hall-Spencer, from the University of Plymouth, has backed a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) revealing the extent of the crisis facing humanity as the ocean and its services begin to show signs of collapse
University scientist joins world experts to ask big questions about blue carbon
Marine scientists from the University of Plymouth have contributed to a major international study exploring the role of our oceans and coastlines in trapping atmospheric carbon dioxide
