A laboratory-based investigation into the functional role of rhodopsin in two species of marine dinoflagellates, involving algal culturing techniques, growth experiments under different light and trace metal conditions, and qPCR amplification of the putative rhodopsin gene to test for up-regulation under certain conditions.
Zooplankton fecal pellets (FPs) are important conduits of carbon from the surface to the deep ocean, as shown by their presence in deep-sea sediment traps. Zooplankton themselves are thought to play an important role in the breakdown and reworking of FPs as they sink, whilst processes such as diel vertical migration (DVM) may enhance the supply of...
Diel vertical migration is a widespread behaviour amongst zooplankton, yet its effect on the rate at which individuals respire remains poorly understood. To address this, we investigated the effect of short-term temperature change on the respiration rate of Euphausia triacantha , a common component of the Southern Ocean zooplankton and a prominent...
In the Southern Ocean, several zooplankton taxonomic groups, euphausiids, copepods, salps and pteropods, are notable because of their biomass and abundance and their roles in maintaining food webs and ecosystem structure and function, including the provision of globally important ecosystem services. These groups are consumers of microbes, primary a...
The South Sandwich Islands are an isolated, oceanic, volcanically formed archipelago in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean. The complex bathymetry, coupled with the location in the marginal sea-ice zone and the relationship with the ACC makes the region both productive and biodiverse. Although remote, the region is not pristine and has been...
The South Sandwich Islands (SSI) are a biologically productive archipelago situated in the eastern Scotia Sea to the south of the eastward flowing Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC). The islands support important populations of higher predators, including several penguin species, seals and humpback whales. Despite this, the plankton ecology of the...
A summary of a report carried out on behalf of Renewable World and their in-country partners to investigate the potential to utilise the NAPA and LAPA frameworks to mobilise and extend the implementation, financing and development of micro-renewable technologies in remote, rural and poor areas of Nepal.
This study was undertaken on behalf of Renewable World Nepal and their in-country partners to investigate the potential for use of the National and Local Adaptation Plan of Action (NAPA and LAPA) frameworks as a route to mobilise and expand micro-renewable technology financing, development and implementation in remote, rural and poor areas of Nepal...
