A recent study in @nature couldn't replicate drastic CO2 effects on coral reef #fish behaviour & empirically found no effect of #oceanacidification

Our #metaanalysis of the past decade on this topic concurs

Breakdown thread👇
We demonstrate one of the most striking examples of the #DeclineEffect in #ecology to date, w/ reported effects of OA on fish behaviour all but disappearing over past decade

If you’ve never heard of the #DeclineEffect see:
Qualitatively the number of studies reporting “strong” effects of #oceanacidification on fish behaviour have plummeted over time

Keep an eye out for these wonderful scientists, all either recently graduated or just about to. Looking forward to seeing what they're up to in the very near future! 2/n
Lucas Prasuhn scanned hundreds of #fish for parasites, self - teaching himself to identify them using pictures and references from the literature over a year. We worked on basic R skills and he went on to use them for complex diversity models in just a few months! #ABS2020 3/n ImageImage

"#Homoeopathy is a branch of universal #medicine based on the ‘principle of the like’ (Similia Similibus Curentur = Like treats Like) and in #minimum doses." .. I
It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

Ok... let’s get started.

1/10: So, it’s four years since the #Brexit referendum. We have formally left the #EU but remain in the single market & customs union until 31 December. The future relationship beyond that is still unknown. What are the chances of a deal before the deadline? A thread...
2/10: Negotiators have just 4 months left. It will take two more after that for a deal to be ratified. If there is a deal the scope will be narrow; aiming for tariff-free & quota-free trade in goods. Little on services, never mind non-trade issues. A hard version of #Brexit.
3/10: UK insists a deal must not limit “sovereignty” or leave jurisdiction with the ECJ. It has proposed a series of deals built around a free trade agreement that would involve widespread removal of traditional trade barriers, but far short of the promised “frictionless trade”.

1. #WSTC6 #FishSesh Purse seine fishing is an emerging arena for seabird #bycatch. However, these are also impacting seabirds with edible #fish oil. #Soaked individuals are disrupted in waterproofing, thermal isolation, flight, and prone to #death. How does this happen? Image
2. #WSTC6 #FishSesh #Chile #shearwaters #albatrosses #gulls are affected by fish oil from the direct discharge of #wastewaters or individuals #trapped in the purse seine gear (mean N°ind./set 8.41-12.90 CI 95%, with 96.87% of all trapped soaked) Image
3. #WSTC6 #FishSesh Feathers showed disruption of micro-structures (barbules) under responding at low oil concentrations (5%). Onboard, soaked seabirds remain under this status after 24h of oil exposure when trapped in fishing gear Image

Yesterday, on the 1st day of the UK's #COVID19 lockdown, I started posting a daily #deepsea fact on my instagram (@diva_amon) to help amaze/excite/distract. Will cross-post them here also. Feel free to add comments/questions/etc. & I'll try to get to them #DivasDailyDeepSeaFact
DAY 1: The test used to diagnose #COVID19 & other pandemics was developed with the help of an enzyme isolated from a #microbe found in #DeepSea #HydrothermalVents & freshwater hot springs.
Video: @NERCscience @adrg1.
Fact: @WHOI.
DAY 2: #DeepSea life can be slow. Case in point: the Greenland #shark (Somniosus microcephalus) can live for >400 years & only becomes sexually mature at >150 years old. Yes, it took me a grand total of 2 posts to start talking about sex. I blame @Marahh2o. Video: @oceanexplorer

I’m so bloody tired of freshwater ecosystems being overlooked 😤. So here’s a thread about why you and everyone else should give a shit #freshwaterneedslovetoo #tellyourgrandmothertoo🏞️(1/n)
#Freshwater makes up less than 2.5% of the world’s water (much is inaccessible, trapped in glaciers) yet 140000 species incl. 55% (!!) of all #fish species 🐟depend on it to survive (2/n)

Source: USGS
The world (people, organizations etc.) focuses much more on marine and terrestrial ecosystems, often literally excluding #freshwater at all. Ex: this figure by IUCN. Where the fuck are freshwater species? #freshwaterneedslovetoo (3/n)

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Oh Sulawesi, betapa njlimetnya dikau...

(Sumber: Pholbud et al., 2012)
Jadi gini, "tangan-tangan" Sulawesi itu asalny dr wilayah yg beda di dunia

40 juta thn lalu, yg plg jelas muncul duluan itu 2 tangan: Northern Sulawesi (NS) & Western Sulawesi (WS)

NS itu "vulcanic island arc", smntr WS itu "fragmen pecahan Sundaland"

Gambar: Hall (2013)
25 juta thn yg lalu, fragmen2 Sulawesi mulai saling mendekat terutama yg dari Lempeng Australia (Hall, 2013)

2 tangan lainny--East Arm & Southeast Arm--asalnya dr "Sula Spur": rangkaian bbrp fragmen di ujung barat Papua

di masa itu, semua fragmen rata2 msh tenggelam di bwh laut
