Ecology: Oxygen & Growth of Aquatic cold blooded animals
Breathing under water is challenging. How does the oxygen uptake of cold-blooded, aquatic animals change as they grow? Both the capacity for oxygen uptake and the oxygen requirements of animals changes with body size. This animation explains how body size affects oxygen supply and demand via changes in surface area to volume ratios and viscosity effects to provide a better understanding of changes in respiratory challenges during growth.

Australia. The Great White Shark | Full Documentary
We found the great white shark in the waters of the south coast of Australia, a crowded fed by waters from the Antarctic ice continent life. With its two-ton, this great wild predator prowls the Australian beaches in search of its most coveted prey, the sea lion. We dive on the Australian continent to see the beautiful and varied creatures that hide in its waters feared of the white shark. ▶ SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! ▶ Documentary "Australia. The Great White Shark " http://pdoc.es/AustraliaENG-PL The waters that bathe the south of Australia are a link preserved from a former union whit the Antarctic. For the sharks, this is a region of plenty. The basic design of their bodies is 300 million years old, and is literally perfect. But only one of them is called Death. Beyond the reef lies the kingdom of the great killer, the vast blue, the cold waters which are tinged with red when hunger demands. The great white shark, two thousand kilos of savage strength at the service of a mouth. A prodigious animal which, after hundreds of year of blind terror, we are now learning to admire. As we move further up the west coast of Australia, and approach the Tropic of Capricorn, corals are more in evidence, and start to form reefs. The coral reef is a very different ecosystem from that of the cold waters of the south. The coral reef is like a gigantic self-contained organism, in which energy passes from one layer to the next, with just two essential ingredients - the sun and the sea. The corals are specialists in poor waters like these, provided they are clear. We arrive in the dominions of the great white shark, the dark blue waters. And here, a tragedy, repeated every year, is about to occur. The sea lions sense that the breeding season is approaching. Along the coast of southern Australia and Tasmania, they begin to gather near suitable places, playing and swimming with their characteristic skill. The great white sharks like nothing better than a fresh fur seal – warm red meat, covered in delicious fat, clean and easy to digest. But the great white shark comes to its annual rendezvous with the seal cubs. All it need do is approach the colony, and wait for its chance. This individual is eight metres of sheer fury, and almost two thousand kilos of expert hunter. Though it is a fish, its blood is ten degrees centigrade warmer than the surrounding water, so its muscles perform better in attack. It detects the electrical fields generated by its victims, and it is equipped with a system of navigation based on the earth’s magnetic field. Its sense of smell is infallible, and the muscles around its eyes are warmer than the others, to give it optimum sight. The black legend of the white shark has been forged on the basis of exaggerations. Its fame as a monster, devourer of men, is far in excess of the reality. But, for decades, it has served as an excuse for uncontrolled fishing. Their impressive appearance made them the most sought after of all fisherman’s trophies. In reality, attacks on humans are rare and, strangely, many of the victims survive. Like these three mutilated men, who know spend their lives killing the white sharks that attacked them. The white shark possesses the curiosity of all prowlers. We now know that the white shark only attacks men by mistake or in self-defence, when in these cloudy waters it mistakes them for its normal prey, the sea lions. It is so elusive that, in seas where there are now hardly any seals, and the white sharks eat other prey that don’t resemble man, not only are there no attacks, but people don’t even suspect they exist. This fantastic animal is a symbol of the sea in which it lives, a sea which we are threatening, a much more deadly threat than the great white. It is relatively easy to defend the great white, but there are 350 other species of shark increasingly threatened over-fishing, with virtually no one paying any attention to their plight. No one knows how many answers lie in these waters, but one thing is certain, in the deep, vast blue, in the salty abyss in which all these creatures live, only one is king. Carcharodon carcharias, the white death. ▶SUBSCRIBE | http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc ▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ WILD ANIMALS DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-wild-animals ▶FACEBOOK | http://bit.ly/FBPDoc ▶TWITTER | http://bit.ly/TwPDoc ▶TUMBLR | http://bit.ly/TbPlDoc Thumbnail By Elias Levy (Great White Shark) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Dolphins and steel: marine mammal ecology in industrialised seas
Professor Ben Wilson, professor of energy, University of the Highlands and Islands Tuesday 10 February 2015, Inverness College UHI Inaugural Professorial Lecture: “Dolphins and steel: marine mammal ecology in industrialised seas” Our coastal seas host an impressive diversity and abundance of marine mammals. Many of these species have been known about for hundreds of years but only in recent decades have we developed the tools to really understand their daily lives and the threats that they face. Concurrent has been an increasing use of the seas and oceans for industrial activities from food and energy provision to transport and war. In this talk, Ben Wilson outlines his own studies of Scottish porpoises, Pacific sea lions and bottlenose dolphin populations from the Moray Firth to Florida and Croatia. All of these populations have been impacted by human activities to greater, lesser or unknown extents. His current work focusses on how technologies to extract renewable energy from the seas (wind, waves and tides) will interact with indigenous wildlife. These studies have posed many questions about how and why marine mammals and fish use energetic ocean habitats and in particular how they will respond to the diversity of the novel marine machines being proposed. Of specific conservation concern is whether or not marine mammals will collide with the blades of tidal turbines. Scotland is currently the world hub for marine energy extraction and so many of these fascinating interactions will take place off our own shores. Accordingly, Ben and the wider University of the Highlands and Islands marine energy research team has a ring-side seat on these issues and is playing a leading role in developing industry relevant solutions.

Ocean Alert: Overfishing
The world's oceans are the biggest source of food for the whole planet. Almost 35% of the world's population gets most of their protein from ocean animals. Although seafood markets around the market appear to be full, they hide a crisis: overfishing. Overfishing occurs when people catch more animals than the ocean can sustain.

Journal of Animal Ecology : In hot and cold water: differential life-history traits are key...
In hot and cold water: differential life-history traits are key to success in contrasting thermal deep-sea environments. Leigh Marsh et al (2015), Journal of Animal Ecology http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/1365-2656.12337 Few species of reptant decapod crustaceans thrive in the cold-stenothermal waters of the Southern Ocean. However, abundant populations of a new species of anomuran crab, Kiwa tyleri, occur at hydrothermal vent fields on the East Scotia Ridge. As a result of local thermal conditions at the vents, these crabs are not restricted by the physiological limits that otherwise exclude reptant decapods south of the polar front. We reveal the adult life history of this species by piecing together variation in microdistribution, body size frequency, sex ratio, and ovarian and embryonic development, which indicates a pattern in the distribution of female Kiwaidae in relation to their reproductive development. High-density ‘Kiwa’ assemblages observed in close proximity to sources of vent fluids are constrained by the thermal limit of elevated temperatures and the availability of resources for chemosynthetic nutrition. Although adult Kiwaidae depend on epibiotic chemosynthetic bacteria for nutrition, females move offsite after extrusion of their eggs to protect brooding embryos from the chemically harsh, thermally fluctuating vent environment. Consequently, brooding females in the periphery of the vent field are in turn restricted by low-temperature physiological boundaries of the deep-water Southern Ocean environment. Females have a high reproductive investment in few, large, yolky eggs, facilitating full lecithotrophy, with the release of larvae prolonged, and asynchronous. After embryos are released, larvae are reliant on locating isolated active areas of hydrothermal flow in order to settle and survive as chemosynthetic adults. Where the cold water restricts the ability of all adult stages to migrate over long distances, these low temperatures may facilitate the larvae in the location of vent sites by extending the larval development period through hypometabolism. These differential life-history adaptations to contrasting thermal environments lead to a disjunct life history among males and females of K. tyleri, which is key to their success in the Southern Ocean vent environment. We highlight the complexity in understanding the importance of life-history biology, in combination with environmental, ecological and physiological factors contributing to the overall global distribution of vent-endemic species.

Estuaries: Where the River Meets the Sea
Estuaries and their surrounding wetlands are bodies of water usually found where rivers meet the sea. Estuaries are home to unique plant and animal communities that have adapted to brackish water—a mixture of fresh water draining from the land and salty seawater. Estuaries are among the most productive ecosystems in the world. Many animals rely on estuaries for food, places to breed, and migration stopovers. Estuaries are delicate ecosystems. Congress created the National Estuarine Research Reserve System to protect more than one million acres of estuarine land and water. These estuarine reserves provide essential habitat for wildlife, offer educational opportunities for students, and serve as living laboratories for scientists.

Fluorescence in the deep-sea squid Histioteuthis: The case of the green-eyed squid
Scientists at MBARI recently deployed blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on our remotely operated submersibles to observe fluorescence in deep-sea animals and investigate the ecological roles of light in the deep sea. When we shined blue LEDs on the strawberry squid, Histioteuthis, we were surprised by an impressive light show. This squid has one normal-sized eye, and one extraordinarily large eye, which was brightly fluorescent, indicating the presence of a blue-absorbing fluorescent pigment. The fluorescent pigment most likely aids in capturing prey by breaking their camouflage. Many organisms have fluorescent structures, but we are still exploring what the natural functions of these fluorescent pigments are.

Home Sweet Habitat: Crash Course Kids #21.1
How would a Polar Bear do if you put it in the desert? Not well. But why? Why can't anything live anywhere? Well, this has to do with Habitats and how animals (including humans) are suited for living in one place over another. In this episode, Sabrina talks about how these Habitats form Food Webs and how those Food Webs help us understand a lot about the world. This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

Marine ecology in easter island
Easter Island is the most isolated inhabited island in the world, over 3,000 kilometers from the Chilean coast. At about 29 degrees South, it is the southern limit to the range in which corals can thrive, and its extreme isolation has led to a depauperate marine community with extremely high endemism. However, whereas coral reefs around the world are currently in decline, reefs at Easter Island appear to have been increasing in coral cover for the last several decades from an algal-dominated state. Researchers from Chile and the US sought to determine how the small regional species pool and isolated oceanographic position of Easter Island might influence these changes.

► Adventure Ocean Quest - The White Sharks of Guadalupe (FULL Documentary)
Up to 7 metres of muscle and teeth, packed into an agile and streamlined body that can weigh in at 2250kg – this is the great white shark, one of the most infamous hunters on Earth. But the reality is that these sharks may disappear from our oceans altogether within the next 20 years. Their terrifying reputation is part myth, part reality, rooted in their instinct to hunt and kill whatever looks like a good prey animal … and that can include human beings. But how far is their killer-reputation justified? Are great white sharks really the blood-thirsty loners we imagine them to be? Dr. Mauricio Hoyos is a scientist working on the behaviour and ecology of sharks. He wants to find out why they follow certain patterns of movements, including longdistance travels. The usual methods of getting close to great whites to study them closely and form impressions of their population cross-section include caged dives and diving with airtanks. But these techniques are now known to affect the sharks’ behaviour: the predators’ extraordinary electrical sensory systems react to the galvanic properties of metal. In addition, the sharks are often lured closer with bloody bait, a technique that undoubtedly increases the animals’ aggression and prey drive, which makes them uncomfortably dangerous diving partners. Furthermore, caged dives entirely rely on the animals coming to the researchers in order to take detailed notes on each individual, but the success of this depends on the sharks’ mood and willingness to approach the cage. Frederic is able to approach the animals and is treated entirely differently by them compared to conventional divers. His very basic equipment means that there is less chance of it interfering with the sharks’ normal and natural behaviour, which allows him to get close to them without triggering aggression. He dives with the sharks without a cage, without any form of protection – just Frederic and two other freedivers versus the predators in the water. They watch each other’s backs, because the sharks are known to attack mostly from behind. But freediving is the very thing that makes Frederic’s diving encounter with the great whites a safer experience. Frederic is likely to get much closer to the sharks than is normally possible, and in this way is able to assess the animals in more detail. Frederic’s assignment also includes an assessment of the sharks’ behaviour. This is also extremely difficult under normal conditions, when diving equipment interferes with the sharks’ behaviour. As such very little is known about the great whites’ detailed behaviour, and Frederic’s dives with them is an unprecedented window into their lives. Since Christian is there to document Frederic’s finding, the scientist is able to try to assess and interpret the behaviour witnessed by the freedivers. Since Great Whites have such a fearsome reputation, Frederic’s interactions with them in the water in itself provide the researchers with interesting insights into their interactions with humans. How and why does their behaviour differ towards a diver with conventional equipment compared to a freediver like Frederic and his two friends: This is an experiment that has never been documented before. To gain more insights into approaching fierce predators like the great white shark, Christian and Frederic have to be extremely well prepared. One thing is certain: with a predator like this, nothing can be left to chance. It is their success as a predator and their huge potential to inflict hideous damage that has made it so difficult to study them in detail and to assess their behaviour adequately from close quarters.

Ryan Daly, Trophic ecology of bull sharks in the coastal waters of the southwest Indian Ocean
Oral Presentation Ryan Daly1, Pierre W. Froneman1, Malcolm J. Smale2,3 1Department of Zoology & Entomology, Rhodes University, Po Box 94, Grahamstown, South Africa 6140 2Port Elizabeth Museum at Bayworld, PO Box 13147, Humewood, Port Elizabeth, 6013, South Africa 3Department of Zoology, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, PO Box 77000, Port Elizabeth, 6031, South Africa As apex predators, sharks play an important role in shaping their respective marine communities through predation and associated risk affects. Understanding the trophic dynamics of sharks within communities is, therefore, necessary to establish effective ecologically based conservation strategies. We employed non-lethal sampling methods to investigate the trophic ecology of sub-adult and adult bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas) within a subtropical marine community in the southwest Indian Ocean using stable isotope analysis. Bull sharks and co-occurring predatory fish assemblages had similarly high trophic positions confirming their roles as top predators. Bull sharks, however, had a significantly wider niche width than other top predatory fish species suggesting that they had a greater predatory influence on the broader community with dietary contributions from primary, secondary and tertiary teleost consumers. The highly enriched δ13C values of a proportion of the bull shark population relative to the base isotopic sources at the study site further suggested that some individuals were foraging over a broad geographical range. Increased foraging range appeared to be associated with the greater mobility of adults. These larger individuals appeared to exhibit a shift in isotopic niche space towards a diet consistent with higher trophic level prey from a more diverse range of sources. This highlighted the important role of this large marine predator and suggests that they are capable of shaping and linking ecological processes from multiple marine communities.

Is there hope for conservation? | James Borrell | TEDxQMUL
James Borrell is a conservation biologist with a passion for challenging research expeditions. He founded the social enterprise Discover Conservation and is a member of the Inspired50. James’ research has taken him from the Peruvian Amazon to the High Arctic studying everything from critically endangered big cats, to tiny dragonflies and even dwarf trees. Even having visited remote parts of the tropics, James describes the hardest working environment as a bleak hillside in the Scottish Highlands with ‘typical’ Scottish weather. James’ particular interest is the genetics of endangered species and exploring how we can engage young people with conservation through citizen science and fieldwork. Despite all the bad news we are bombarded with daily about the state of our natural world, James is stubbornly optimistic and is convinced we are beginning to turn the corner. It is this message of optimism that James will aim to share in his talk.

Comet Posture in Sea Spiders
Some sea spiders (Pycnogonida) adopt a posture that resembles a comet when they are descending in the water. Team pycno is studying the function of this elegant posture, trying to understand how it fits into the ecology of these animals. It is intriguing that smaller species tend to use this posture more frequently than larger species. Learn more about our research and see more videos on our website: www.polargiants.squarespace.com.

Ghostly critters from the deep sea: Stygiomedusa gigantea
Stygiomedusa gigantea is one of the largest invertebrate predators known in the ocean, yet little is understood about its ecology and behavior. Stygiomedusa lacks tentacles, but has four extraordinarily large oral arms that are presumably used to envelope prey. The swimming bell of this spectacular medusa can reach over one meter across with arms over ten meters long. A symbiotic relationship between Stygiomedusa and the fish, Thalassobathia pelagica, was confirmed in 2003 when scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) filmed the pair swimming together in the Gulf of California. The fish has adapted to using the medusa as a hiding place in its open ocean habitat. In twenty-seven years of scientific ROV surveys, researchers at MBARI have been lucky enough to observe this rare animal seven times, from depths of 750 meters down to 2187 meters.

What are animals thinking and feeling? | Carl Safina
What's going on inside the brains of animals? Can we know what, or if, they're thinking and feeling? Carl Safina thinks we can. Using discoveries and anecdotes that span ecology, biology and behavioral science, he weaves together stories of whales, wolves, elephants and albatrosses to argue that just as we think, feel, use tools and express emotions, so too do the other creatures – and minds – that share the Earth with us.
