Science knows a lot of different forms of symbiosis, but this the first time scientists have found: Corals call for help calves to protect them from those toxic algae.
Examples of symbiosis that is close co-existence and mutual adaptation of members of different species in nature abound. To mind immediately come microorganisms that live in the intestines of mammals, without which digestion would be virtually impossible, or, say, widespread in the tropics, ants and community trees. Typically, speaking of symbiotic mutualism mean, that is a win-win cooperative species, although there are Read more [...]

They occupy our planet 99% of the space, where life could exist. 85% of this volume is to dive into the eternal darkness of the depths of ocean basins.Deep-sea diving with enough equipment became effective only recently implemented, and today we have detailed maps of only 5% of the ocean floor.For the past twenty-five years on average every two weeks published description of a new and hitherto unknown species of the deep sea dweller. An estimated ten to thirty million species yet to be discovered. About those that live at the bottom of the ocean, Read more [...]
At a depth of almost 11,000 feet literally lined the bottom "carpet" of microorganisms.

One of the strangest ocean currents - swirling clockwise great vortex that occurs each summer off the coast of Somalia and the sea surface temperature changes, affecting the monsoon, carrying life-giving water to Asia.
A hundred years the sailors know that the Great vortex occurs simultaneously with the monsoon season in early June and disappears in September - about a month after the winds subside. Recall monsoons are among the most powerful air currents in the world (48 km / h).
A new study suggests that the Great whirlwind still closely associated with the monsoon than thought, but across Read more [...]
A group of divers in Mexico rescued a pregnant whale shark doomed to certain death. Divers who have been on the usual tourist underwater walk in the marine reserve at Roca Partida, cut thick rope that wrapped around the body of the shark.

In early November 2012 large amounts of sediment in the river Guadalquivir made Cadiz Bay, located along the south-west coast of Spain. This image was taken by NASA satellite on November 12.
A thick plume of dirt beige whenever appears in the Bay of Cadiz after the south of Spain rains. The greater precipitation, the more it becomes turbid sea water. This is an indicator of the intensity rains, for which scientists have long observed.
The river originates in the Andalusian mountains, after which the river expands, goes to the swampy lowlands, where divided into several branches. Food mainly Read more [...]
